The fruit and veg is starting to accumulate enough to make up 20% of our lunch and evening meals, Here is one afternoons pickings.
The swede is just thinning's but they made a tasty addition to the mash! The blackcurrants are going black a few at a time so I am accumulating the pickings over a few days to make a big pie with some apples from the market. First cucumber - that saved 80p on its own this week.
We also had a nice picking of turnips one evening which I roasted with a dressing of honey. Was Ok but not exceptional I will have to look around for something more interesting for the nice young ones coming along,
Here is the following afternoon's pickings.
I will start to freeze some of the broad beans this week.
There are some flowers appearing on the peas and runner beans but progress is slow as some days have not been especially warm.
We have discovered another threat to the crops - my husband put his camera trap on video at the very end of the field and captured a deer early one morning. That explains the big bite marks in a sweetcorn leaf and the big pile of pooh on the grass.
