It may not be a lot (218 grams), but what these potatoes lack in terms of mass they make up for in terms of texture and flavour. Potatoes are probably the most satisfying of all home-grown veg. There is something special about having to wait until the plant is dug up to see what the yield is going to be like! Actually, the plant from which these potatoes were picked had several more tiny tubers, so I have packed it back into its pot, and it may well go on to produce a small second crop.
Guess what? More radishes! (We like radishes, fortunately). Actually I have harvested even more radishes than I have photographed, because they do look pretty much the same each time.
These round red ones this time are "Cherry Belle", probably my favourite radish, and one which is very reliable.
This is "Flamboyant 5", a French Breakfast type.
I generally try to pick somewhere between a dozen and twenty Radishes each time, because that is about how many we want to eat. We tend not to do anything fancy with them, but just dip them in salt and eat them as a pre-dinner nibble. We do occasionally use Radishes in a proper recipe, but not normally when the Radishes are home-grown - they are too good to mess about with!
We also ate the first mature Lettuce from the garden, a "Devin" one. It wasn't convenient to photograph it as I harvested it, but here it is made into a salad with some of the leaves from the Cutting Salad patch.
There was also a bit more Asparagus - enough for a two-person serving:
This week I also harvested a load more Parsley. The plants I have been growing since last Autumn are going Great Guns still, and threatening to swamp the brassicas which are in the same bed:
Some of them are bolting now, so they won't last much longer. It's "Use it or lose it" time.
I picked a washing-up bowlful of it.
It's now in a plastic bag in the fridge, where it will keep for at least a fortnight, and will be used as and when required.
