Yesterday’s Harvest

The time is beginning when it takes longer to harvest crops than it does to do other jobs in the garden.¬† I think this is a fact often over-looked by us gardeners.¬† It is a joy but it can also become just another chore; you have to do it too otherwise plants won’t carry on flowering and producing more, especially zucchini (courgettes) cucumbers and beans.

330 g raspberries

about 150 g black currants, and that's nearly all of them - not good

There were 3 figs, I ate one direct from the tree!

We need to eat beans every day this week, there are so many to pick

there are some zucchini every day now.

Tomatoes and basil for a salad

All the above took about 35 minutes to pick.

There weren’t any cucumbers yesterday but on Sunday I picked seven!

Happy harvesting
