My harvests this time are a bit scant, because we have been away from home for most of the week. Nevertheless...
I'm putting Blueberries at the top of my list this week, simply because they were unexpected. When I picked some the other day I thought that was it, so I was pleasantly surprised to be able to pick another 270g:
Unsurprisingly, almost all of those came from the one plant that I managed to protect with a net. The other plants are mostly bare by now.
I picked a few Cucamelons:
The jury's still out on these. I'm not overly enthused. A novelty, I would say, which probably won't appear in my garden again. I prefer the traditional type of cucumber, like these:
That's one each of "Passandra" (top) and "Diva". In terms of quality, I think these two are equal. In terms of appearance, "Passandra" is lightly slimmer than the chubby "Diva", but that's not necessarily a good thing.
Before we left home, I picked all the tomatoes that were nearly ripe and stashed them in the fridge in some of those green plastic "Stayfresh" bags. It was just over 3.5kgs.
I don't normally put fresh tomatoes in the fridge, because I think it can impair their flavour, but this was an emergency measure, to ensure that the fruit wouldn't spoil during our absence.
I pulled up another small batch of carrots.
I was specifically looking for small ones, to take for Jane's mother, who likes nibbling them raw. I found that what seems like a small carrot is not always a small carrot. And this bunch is very diverse anyway, because it contains specimens from three of the four varieties I'm growing. There a several short dumpy ones, which I wasn't expecting. They are all supposed to be long varieties, and they are growing in a very deep bed full of lovely stone-free sandy soil. Very odd.
Well, that's my harvests for another week. I'm linking my post to Harvest Monday, hosted by Dave at Our Happy Acres, where I'm sure you will be able to see loads more lovely veggies.
