Enough To make You Cry
Yes today was the day when I decided to take up the shallots,
they were just starting to go to seed
Longmor and Yellow Moon
There is loads of Shallots there perhaps more than we will use
There is still another crop of them yet in the ground
These ones who's name escapes me is not going to seed I will leave them in the ground to die back
the others I will leave in the sun to dry off.
Garlic is coming along great and the foliage is starting to yellow
Red onions are looking very good
And the main onions have swelled up lovely
These ones in the above photo were put in a bit later but have caught up with the others
I cleared the leeks out not the biggest but still a good crop
there is going to be a lot of tears when all those onions that are going to be pickled are peeled.
On yesterdays post I mentioned wild Blueberries
This is them, the shrubs don't grow much above a foot and you find them in woodlands, forests and heath land, if you are not sure what you are picking don't pick and eat them, 100% identification is needed when out foraging, you can always pick a few leaves and berries take them home and search on the Internet for identification.
And for those who have never seen wild strawberries before
they are the same as our garden strawberries only the plants and fruits are a lot smaller.
Stay safe when foraging.
