For me it's the same old story: this past week I harvested salads!
In this bowl I have lettuce ("Marvel of Four Seasons"), Rocket and Celery Leaf. The latter has to be picked when very young, and used sparingly because it is very strongly flavoured - but thoroughly delicious as well!
We have had two more small pickings of Radishes. Here's one - a mix of "French Breakfast" and "Cherry Belle".
We did also test a couple of peas (yes, literally two pods) to see if they were ready. The answer was "nearly". Next week I may show you some pictures of peas...
In the meantime, let me show you our latest acquisition in terms of crockery:
These are items from the "Steelite" range. They are all unique in terms of patterning, because they are hand-decorated. They come in many different shapes, sizes and colours. The items we bought are not marketed as a set; we just thought they go well together. And of course they are ideal for serving "Nibbles", such as Radishes!
Since my offering this week is a bit thin, I also want to show you some overhead views of my plot, as evidence that there really are some crops coming along, even if they are mostly not yet harvestable:-
|The six 2.4 x 1 metre raised beds are the mainstay of the plot
Anyone who is new to my blog will be able to see very easily from this photo what sort of person I am! I like things to be neat and tidy - especially my garden. I'm not apologising for this; I'm proud of it. Long-term readers will verify that by dint of carefully planned and meticulous work I manage to get a lot of produce from a small space. The whole garden is roughly 10 metres x 10 metres.
|The paved area serves as both outdoor dining-room & seedling nursery!
Oooh, now I'm wishing I had moved the hosepipe before taking the photos! :-)
