The next success story is bit more mundane you may say, but Jane is making these into a nice dish of Scandinavian-style pork meatballs with baked beetroot, based on one which appears in the September 2010 issue of Delicious magazine...Delicious Here's the journey from plot to plate..

Make some home-made meatballs with minced pork, breadcumbs and onions, bound together with cream instead of egg.

Whoops, nearly forgot to tell you about these!
Some of my Maskotka tomatoes have begun to split -- a sure sign that it has been too wet for them. Because of this I have picked quite a few under-ripe fruit for ripening indoors. A few of the fruits (fortunately very few) have been attacked by slugs -- see the one in the bottom left of this next picture.

Here is today's other failure. Some of the Delinel French Beans are turning yellow before maturing. They are also flat and soft (unlike the plump green one at the left in my picture).
