I've had a busy working week, so I was grateful for the long weekend.
It gave me time to do some cooking, baking and gardening, as well as reflecting and resting.Shelter from the bright sunshine
So here are some photographs of progress in my vegetable garden plot.Progress on the carrot box. I will thin these out at some point.
Broad beans with some pak choi in between (corutesy of our neighbour). Please don't chuckle at my cane stoppers. I had some terracota pig canes that I picked up from Oxfam UK many years ago, but someone pinched them (when I lived in a rented accommodation). Anyway, these small cane will save me from losing an eye.
The blue netting behind is housing our Brassica plants, saving from those pesky white cabbage butterflies. Beneath it we have Romensco Cauliflowers and Purple Sprouting Broccoli. At some point these will be joined by Blue Kale.
We have two types of peas - Champion and Telephone.
I have planted out the courgette plants and perpetual spinach.
So what do I have for Harvest Monday ?!
I have pulled out all the Rainbow Swiss Chard that had begun to bolt.I've made lots of dishes with it including these Rainbow Chard Pakoras aka Onion Bhaji's.
