Harvesting is Getting Under Way
There is not a vast amount planted out this year due to moving plans, so what has been grown I have been bringing it on in containers, today I harvested the first couple of Courgettes, some Pak Choi and some more of the Broad Beans
All thrown into a stir fry along with some mushrooms onions garlic and some pork left over from last nights dinner, very nice it was too.
I love it when we can start picking courgettes, we only have one plant this year so there wont be too many, we are also harvesting new potatoes, those I love just boiled and served with butter, Strawberries, I picked the first of the broccoli yesterday we had last night for dinner.
As the new people are going to flatten the garden I intend to use as much as possible of what veg is in the ground, even if i have to use it as young baby veg.
The Asparagus is finished now, the Runner Beans are just starting to flower, the Cos lettuce is hearting up nicely, and the baby tomatoes are starting to swell, so summer time has defiantly arrived in the garden.
Are you starting to harvest from the plot ?
