Slim pickings from the allotment yesterday, the broccoli is still producing some small side shoots. The strange looking white floret is a cauliflower! Of the six plants , two have produced these strange shapes but they taste OK. 3 tomatoes and there are still lots more but they are slow to redden. I picked some of the peas too, not very big but I used them whole as mange tout. Everything was used in a lovely vegetable risotto!
The cucumber plants have taken on a new lease of life in the greenhouse,While the leaves on the end of the plants have turned yellow, the tops have put on a new spurt and there are about 3 or 4 on each of the three plants.The peppers are in the background but the sun has burned some of them, I turned them so that their leaves will hopefully protect them.
A closer up of the cucumbers
Our pumpkin has finally started turning yellow! We were beginning to wonder if it actually was a pumpkin. It is only now that it is getting some sunshine to ripen I suppose.
An update on the monster lurking on the compost ( horse Manure) heap! It is huge and the second one is nearly as big. There are lots of smaller ones too.
