Small Weekend Harvest

So another weekend has come and gone.  

We went into Gloucester for the Food Festival on Saturday and Sunday I found myself dipping in and out of the garden plot, while D cleared the shed.
I have picked the last of the broad beans and cleared the ground.  

In the space, I am planning to sow some spinach, but here are some strawberries and raspberries that I forgot to share last week. 
Here is a peek into the greenhouse.  The tomatoes are not looking as good as they have in previous years.  They are very leggy, but we are not going to grumble too much at least we have some growing. 
The courgettes are beginning to look good that I will have more than I know what to do with, so any new recipe ideas and suggestions are welcome. 
So here is this weekends harvest

Yellow courgette 
Round courgette
Peas
Green Pole Beans
Purple Climbing Beans
Runner Beans
Peas
Blueberries
Beetroot that had begun to bolt and tomatoes
I am sharing this small harvest with Dave who blogs at Happy Acres for Harvest Monday

  2. The Yellow courgettes are lovely, and my plant s never seem to have that many on them. The tomato plants look lovely too. It gets too hot in our greenhouse to grow them in summer.

  6. Wow, that's quite a haul! We just got our allotment this year, so overgrown after 2 years of neglect that the grass was over our knees. Working on it one bed at a time so it's going to be a while before we manage anything as good as that.

    1. Lovely to make your acquaintance Tonie. Good luck with you allotment - You will get there - the hard work does pay off. I had two allotment plots when i lived in Scotland and then one in Wales, but now only grow in my back garden. Its not big as an allotment plot, but it keeps me involved in trying to grow some of my own at home.

  7. We're down to just about nothing as we're attempting the build up the health of the beds. We will keep adding compost and worm casting between now and probably February (too hot to grow over summer here) and hopefully have lovely soil for next year.
