Today’s bounty


Today’s bounty

All from my garden today. Peas are now in the freezer. Love the Kohlrabi. Have neither grown nor eaten them before but they are both lovely to look at and very tasty! Like a turnip, but a bit sweeter. There are three varieties of cherry tomato. Top left Sugar gloss. Easy, good crop, very attractive - pretty tasteless. The pinkish one at the bottom is Rosella. Fine flavour but a very poor cropper and doesn’t set at all well. On the right is Garnet. Again, good flavour, quite tart.. but not a good crop. The big tomato is Black Russian. A mealy tomato. Tastes good fried. Haven’t yet eaten a raw one. Blueberries are doing well and have really grown well with the feed of liquid seaweed and all the rain! Courgettes are not cropping well in the greenhouse...not enough insects in there. Cucumbers ‘Mini munch’ delicious and easy to grow. Lots of fruit.

What a bounty Karen there's nothing like eating you own produce ,so fresh our courgettes haven't done very well this year and they are outside , we did grow Kohlrabi one year I liked them but nobody else was that impressed so didn't grow them again ...

Lovely all that home grown produc and so satisfying. I'll be interested to find out your opinion of the black Russians, I used to grow the Grand Russe in france, they were an absolute taste bomb, especially raw, and weighed in on average at 1,5lb each. I expected mealiness but was bowled over by its gorgeousness! However we had lots of hot sunny weather so I expect the climate made a difference which reflected in the taste.

I particularly enjoy my mini cucumbers. I find they taste so much better than supermarket cucumbers! Yummy and so crunchy. They make a lovely prawn salad!
