I have already written about most of these things in an earlier post, so I'll be brief. In that basket are Runner Beans, Lettuces, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Cucamelons, Beetroot, Chillis and Potatoes. In the background is a "January King" Cabbage.
I am picking my maincrop Carrots on an "as required" basis. This is the most recent batch. They are the variety "Norwich". They are mostly fairly good specimens, but one is very shorty and stubby and one is a complete joker.
I also harvested some finger Carrots, about which I shall write separately. For now, just a photo.
I have been picking Tomatoes every day, and I have lost count of how many. Early in the year I thought my Tomato harvest was going to be poor, but it certainly hasn't been. There are 10 tubs of Tomato Sauce in the freezer already. These ones are "Grushkova".
More Tomatoes. These are the little tiny "Supersweet 100".
And these two are "Ferline", along with a "Diva" Cucumber.
You probably saw this one a couple of days ago too. It is a "Ruby Perfection" Red Cabbage. A nice heavy specimen (1.6kgs).
There has been a steady trickle of beans coming in. Not huge quantities, but enough to keep us supplied, and to put a couple of bags of them in the freezer.
|"Streamline" (L), "Cobra" (C) and "Tenderstar" (R)|
I have not been very impressed with either of the Runner Bean varieties I have grown this time. "Streamline" has been OK, but not up to the standard of the ones I have grown before, whereas the Runner / French cross "Tenderstar" has been a big disappointment.
I'll end my post where it began - with another photo of my 31st August "harvest basket":
I'm linking my post to Harvest Monday, hosted by Dave at Our Happy Acres, where I'm sure you will be able to read about lots more amazing harvests of fruit and veg.
