I'm not one for making detailed records of what I harvest, and reckoning-up total weights etc, but my photos provide a pretty good guide, since I do tend to photograph most of my crops.
So this is what I harvested in the past week, in pictorial format:-
|New potatoes - Belle de Fontenay|

|Broad Beans, Peas and Kohlrabi|
The green-podded pea varieties ("Boogie" and "Premium") have done very badly again, producing a very meagre crop. The plants have (as usual in my garden) succumbed to mildew. Fortunately, the peas inside the pods are beautifully sweet, so they are still worth having.

I have also picked the first of the purple-podded peas. Their plants are huge and still healthy-looking. The yield from them is going to be much better.
Although the pods are purple, the peas inside are green - a very subdued, almost greyish green.

This kohlrabi is one of those that I have been growing in pots.
|First of the Beetroot - Boltardy|
We ate these beetroots plain boiled and they were beautiful - very tender and the taste was what I describe as "earthy". Because of this I think, you either love beetroot or hate it. I love it.

So there we have it. Hopefully there will be more to describe next week!
