Quick post today as I am off to Robert's Cove.Harvest from the plot yesterday was colourfull and tasty! Lots of tomatoes & courgettes (still)! Tomatoes ripening on the vine is almost a novelty over here as we have had so many cold wet summers with so little natural sunshine and heat.
Star of the show has to be a big boy beef tomato, weighing in at 400grms and this is not the biggest one there are 2 more to ripen.
French beans are still being produced by our 3 plants.
Blueberries, coming to the end of their harvest and the foliage on the bushes has turned a beautifull shade of red.Look closely and our first and only blackberry from our thornless blackberry bush is in there too.There are more to ripen and I also noticed our autumn fruiting raspberries have fruit set to ripen.
Our first globe artichoke was ready to pick and was dispatched for supper.I think these really need to be eaten home alone!I just steamed the whole head and pick off the leaves one by one and dip in butter, the real stuff none of your dairy spreads for this.There was a good big choke in the centre too, very hard to describe the taste but yummy would be good.
Rhubarb is coming to the end too as we want to leave some to feed the plants for next year.
