I have managed to harvest a bowl of mixed vegetables. Look at the size of the cucumbers, they are huge. My mixed bowl also contains two fennel bulbs, turnips, courgettes & runner beans. There would have been tomatoes but as always Mike ate them in the greenhouse.
The fennel, courgettes & turnips were cut up into chunks & roasted with garlic & mixed herbs. We served the roasted veg with some salmon & the runner beans. Yum!
The cucumbers lasted for two days tops. Thankfully the bush is still producing & we will have three more to pick soon.
Also my brassica patch is really taking off. Having the netting in place straight away has really helped to protect my little plants. These are the plants that I grew from seed. I have (don't laugh) 4 cauliflowers, 4 kale, 4 cabbage ( maybe spring greens yet) & six purple sprouting broccoli.
I am really looking forward to a harvest from these next year. Enjoy your day!
