The vaguely green-fingered thoughts of a rambling rose.


While we still have one basket of cherry tomatoes yet to ripen enough to harvest, everything else in the garden has now been harvested. We did really well with our courgette plants over the Summer, but our pumpkin and butternut squashes failed yet again. We're still havesting some fat juicy strawberries, but our raspberries were often attacked by Mrs Nutkin.

My very first attempt at growing beetroot didn't really have the wow factor, but maybe the taste will make up for it.

The sweetcorn was a real hit with the family, but not all of it developed well. Lola found these 'ends' tasty enough though, along with a good few earwigs that we found in the folds of the leaves.

More french beans and courgettes.

And finally a freshly washed tray of potatoes, onions (don't ask), peppers and tomatoes along with a freshly laid Lola egg.

All in all, not a fabulously large crop, but enough to rustle up a meal or two for our family.

  1. Hmmm... no. Beetroot are not pretty, but damned tasty roasted - hope you enjoyed them! They are one of my favourites, but I didn't grow any this year... perhaps I will next year as you've reminded me how good they are.
