a small harvest


2012 hasn't been a good year on my little veg patch! Here is this afternoons harvest of cues, toms, beans and chillies. Last year I had so many tomatoes I was making chutney for weeks on end, this year the courgettes have been a disaster too so lets hope next year will be a bit better. The picture is colourful so that cheered me up. This afternoon has been very warm in Kent so I've enjoyed my last holiday day relaxing in the garden.

Yum yum. That is a colourful picture indeed! That would make a lovely summery salad xxx

Yes, that is a good haul indeed. We have had so much rain, that even the tomatoes in the plastic greenhouse refuse to ripen and have just gone rotten!! All of them. The one's outside are not much better, so it looks as though our harvest is done for unfortunately. We have had some potatoes, a few runner beans and spring onions, but that is about all. Well done you. Ann x

I thought I'd lost all the tomatoes but luckily only one plant. I still have the little black cherry ones to harvest, they look nice too. I plan to make some tomatoe apple jam this afternoon with the 1kg I picked

Your little veg plot has done much better than mine. I haven't had a ripe tomato yet, and the beans all got munched by slugs. I've put a late sowing in so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that I get a late harvest.

Jo - I did a late sowing of direct sown dwarf beans and they have lots of buds. Hopefully we can harvest some in Sept as I hate buying them from the shops!
