The beetroot continues to flourish and we have had several lots with salad. The last of the harvest I intend to pickle ready to go with cold cuts over the Christmas period.
I have already frozen several portions of the dwarf green beans and there is still enough for several more. They have been a real delight easy to keep tied up in the winds we have on this blustery coast.
The runner beans have also been a good crop but a nightmare to keep up because of bad weather, a good crop none the less and tasty.
The tomatoes have been amazing, we are now eating them on a daily basis either at lunch or dinner. I intend to make a couple of jars of chutney in preparation for Christmas.
The chillies have been slow but continue to grow and the peppers have been amazing.
Leeks have been transplanted into a cleared bed from the mini greenhouse.
Finally the turnips are ready to be thinned out.
A rather pleasing set of crops from the garden thus far this year. The hard work making and putting in the raised beds has been worth it as my husband can do so much more in the garden at this height. It has become a lovely shared hobby with wonderful edible rewards. Not enough for self sufficiency as is our dream but a pleasing first step.
See you soon.
