It’s been another great week in the garden, highlighted by the beginning of the corn harvest. The weather has been lovely, though warming up quite a lot over the last few days. Sadly, there has been no rain, but we’re hoping to get some this week.
So what’s been picked this week?
Six cobs of corn – all eaten straight from the cob either barbecued or steamed with lots of butter!
A couple of zucchinis – most of which went into a zucchini relish which I’ll post about later in the week.
4 smallish cucumbers
About 1kg of cherry tomatoes and a couple of roma tomatoes. I made a small batch of cherry tomato and chilli jam with these.
Some mint and parsley.
And we also dug up to potatoes. There were lots of them, but mostly very small (or tiny!). It was disappointing but not unexpected given that they were grown from old wrinkly seed potatoes I had left over from last year’s harvest, they got very little water and the soil was poor quality. They did work breaking up the ground a bit more in that part of the garden and with some manure and blood and bone it will be a good spot to grow the broad beans that I’ll plant soon.
For other harvest head over here.
