After a hot stormy and muggy few days we visited the plot after a weeks absence to harvest whatever crops were ready.
We were so pleased to pick our first sweet peas a mixed variety from a £0.25P packet the scent is heavenly our absolute favourite from any flower.
Runner and french beans are now prolific and we harvested the last of the Charlotte potatoes to give our daughter a nice bag to take home.
Beetroots are ready and we picked a few to boil and skin in our usual manner and eat hot.
We only have outdoor tomatoes but they are beginning to ripen and there are plenty of them on three plants which are sited in the middle of the plot and look remarkedly healthy. (famous last words)
Peas never seem to find there way into the pot quite a few get eaten when picking, the rest take there chances depending who is doing the shelling in this case there were four of us so we decided to finish eating them raw and `save on the gas bill`
Perpetual spinach is ready and we are picking regularly
Sweetcorn will be the last to harvest probably in September
