We arrived home from a holiday yesterday (at 03:30 - arrgggh!), so this morning I was of course out in the garden seeing how things had fared. Thanks to the efforts of a "duty rota" of three garden helpers, the garden looks fine and is bursting with produce. This is a just brief post to show the state of play and qualify me to join in on Daphne's Harvest Monday link-up.
I'm not showing you any more pictures of Runner Beans this time, but rest assured that they are still cropping vigorously. I picked just over 800g of them. This is what else I got:
Here it is in closeup. Another four "Iznik" cucumbers (these ones are perhaps on the over-mature side, so will definitely need peeling before we eat them); six "Pingtung Long" Aubergines (they would probably have grown bigger, but the plants are looking very tired now); another batch of French Beans, and a handful of chillis.
And what about this? Radishes. You know how badly my radishes have done this year, so getting a dozen or so useable ones seems like a major achievement! These ones are "French Breakfast".
This was probably the most welcome of all - about 400g of "Autumn Bliss" Raspberries. Bit of a crisis though: we couldn't get any diabetic ice cream for Jane. Oh well, they will just have to be eaten plain.
By the way, I will have no more photos of tomato harvests to post now, because I cut down all my plants just before we went away. However that doesn't mean we won't be eating any tomatoes, since we still have a huge quantity ripening indoors. Maybe another batch of tomato sauce is in order?
