I share some golden and red cherry tomatoes from the greenhouse. The lettuce has either bolted or the slugs have got to them.
A handful of runner beans. We didn't plant that many, but we have have enjoyed them mostly steamed over the past month.
Although I have some beetroot growing in my garden, a friend of a good friend handed me a brown paper bag that contained some beetroot from her allotment plot. I thought it would be rude not to accept as it was a gift to welcome the start of a new working relationship. I made this Beetroot Chutney. I will share the recipe later in the week.
In the paper brown bag, there were also a couple of allotment grown carrots. D was a little jealous of the soil covered carrots as we didn't grow any this year, next year we hope we will. I am going to enjoy these two carrots, simply grated in a salad or coleslaw.
The nasturtium flowers are still growing in my garden plot, but some of the plants are turning to seed. I harvested some fresh green nasturtium seeds for preserving. Recipe coming soon, so if your interested come back later in the week.I mentioned last week that many of the plums had fallen to the ground and bruised. These are the last of my homegrown plums, other than those still hanging on the branches trying not to be bullied by the breeze and be knocked down to the ground.
I am sharing this post with Harvest Monday is hosted by Dave over Our Happy Acres.
