Home-grown Raspberries in October are a real treat, even if they're not plentiful. Even a handful like this can provide a nice boost to a bowl of ice-cream.
I wrote a few days ago about pulling the last of the beetroot, but here's a photo of the whole batch, just for the record.
I cut one of the Red Cabbages. It's tiny (about the size of a grapefruit), but very densely-packed, so it will certainly be sufficient for a 2-person serving.
We're eating an Endive every couple of days now. Mixed in with Radicchio and Lettuce it makes a very interesting salad, that scores well in terms of taste, colour and texture.
The beans of course are still going. This batch weighed-in at 800g.
Today I also want to give a mention to some of my herbs. They don't often get to be Centre Stage, and I seldom mention harvesting them, but we use lots of them, and to me herbs are an essential part of both my gardening and my cookery.
This is Mint - looking a bit tired and pale now, but the tips are still useable.
This is Parsley, a real staple ingredient, and one which I never have enough of.
And finally, probably my most favourite herb of all - Thyme:
I'll be entering this post to "Harvest Monday" on Daphne's Dandelions, so why not pop across there too and see what else people have been harvesting this week...
