Some home grown veg harvested at the weekend. I'm finally getting a good supply of courgettes and I'm trying to pick them small, however, it's amazing how quick they grow over a couple of days. I find salads and stir fries really easy to prepare and a good way to get crops eaten.
Harvested left: Lettuce ‘Little Gem Pearl’, Mint (in the bowl); Courgette (zucchini F1)*, Courgette (yellow zucchini) 'Soleil F1'*, Spring Onion ‘White Lisbon’, Bean 'Dwarf Purple Queen'*, and a few Bean 'Dwarf French Tendergreen'* .
The Purple Queen Bean have done best this year. I'm afraid my 'cobra' bean* flopped and the 'Dwarf French Tendergreen' bean hasn't produced very much.
(The * above indicates grown from seed.)
|Onion 'Stuttgarter' - this is the first time I've managed to grow onion! I lifted them and are in the process of drying them.|
Lettuce ‘Bijou’ (purple); Lettuce ‘Little Gem Pearl’, Courgette (zucchini F1)* , Courgette (yellow zucchini) 'Soleil F1'* , Spring onion ‘White Lisbon’
I've recently sown a range of Winter lettuces and am hoping they will take me into October for salad; although I do get a bit tired of eating so much salad!
The * above indicates plants grown from seed. My seed list is here.
