Small Red Duke of York potatoes
some french beans & small tomatoes
blackcurrants,strawberries,red gooseberries & blueberries.The strawberries and cherry tomatoes went to Jack who eats them like sweets!.Not enough fruit to make a summer pudding so the gooseberries & blackcurrants were added to apples to make a summer fruit tart.The blueberries go on my cereal in the morning.
The long green plant at the top of the photo is a Brussels sprout plant gone to seed, the 4th of 10 to go.It was brought home to the hens and I tied it to the fence.Within a very short time it was a skeletal shape hanging from the fence! Waste not want not.
Kevin noticed some of the globe artichokes and asked to take some home?! I asked if he had eaten them before and he said his Mom (Aisling) had shared some with him and he liked them! 3 of these were added to the harvest after the photo was taken.These are old plants and the outside leaves are inclined to be woody so we are digging them out and replacing with some new off shoots from the existing plants.I usually just bring them to the boil in salted water but Aisling added lemon juice to the water for a little extra oomph.
It is nearly as tall as Kevin, and looks suspiciously like a tomato plant from the leaves and there is a little yellow flower on Kevin's hand which could be a tomato blossom?! A sucker or side shoot?!
The taste of the tomatoes seem to be improving as they get some heat and sunshine
