But for now there is still some bounty. This week I picked some beautiful radishes, they are a really good size.
Some broad beans - they are very sweet when steamed.
A large 'Salad bowl' lettuce.
There has been small quantities of berries - strawberries and mulberries (and cackleberries too). Psst, don't tell anyone, I have also eaten quite a few mulberries straight off the tree!
I also emptied one of the temporary beds I established when we first moved here. The only things in that bed were some pathetic leeks and spring onions.
I don't think I will try leeks here again. I have had success with leeks before but in milder climates. Here where we are a little more extreme, it's been too cold in winter for them to thrive and now that it's warmed up the leeks have started flowering. There is not much leek to these - mostly flower cores...
Even though the same thing has happened to the spring onions, they are a quicker crop and I can plan to avoid the more difficult times of the year to ensure they don't bolt.
There has been a little chives, some dill, thyme and rosemary but that's been it really.
Hope you're pickings are good. Pop over to Daphne's to see her pickings and others from around the world.
