Just when you’re convinced the courgette is slowing down: another whopper.

We had kohlrabi in spring, and we harvested some. Then there were some unhappy plants left that stopped growing while it was hot and dry, we forgot about them, it cooled off+ rained some and look what we have here now…

And somehow the bok choy did well this year. It either bolts or is eaten by the snails, this year it just grew!

Regular

Week 25 of the 2018 growing season.

With some help from these two ninjas, this week we picked 3kg of really good cucumbers, 2.5kg of pretty split tomatoes, 1kg of a few big courgettes, and about 300g each of salad mix, radish, beetroot and beans, with a good 600g of sweet peppers. £4 in from the Sunday salad stall.

I’m hoping for harvests all the way to Halloween, but I am getting suspicious of how much longer some of the plants can handle. Otherwise, lots of weeding and tucking in for the year going on now. I’m not aiming for over winter harvests (just a bit easier that way) so I can start to tarp over the empty beds ready for next year now. Last orders before we close up, Plot.

We thought we only had four kabocha pumpkins, but look who I found lurking underneath the tromboncino vines?

Week 21 of the 2018 growing season.

Beets and peppers! Well, two of each. But still very promising signs of their main cropping coming in. Lots of side plots (because allotment plots, haha. Classic.) this week, mostly from a whole leaky kitchen ceiling plumbing thing, but also with the beginning of my 2 weeks-ish long birthday celebrations. I am 30 of your earth years next week!

No salad sales this week, but as I’ve been seeing lots of people I’ve been able to give away a lot which I’m still happy with. Lucky number 4 with the vegetables this week, 4kg each of cucumbers, courgettes and tomatoes, half of each in a sellable condition. 300g of a little mixed lettuce harvest, 300g of probably my best radishes so far, 2 sweet red peppers and 2 chioggia (pink and white ringed) beetroot; 50g each. Very tasty, and beautiful toppings for salad.

Found out I have grey hairs in my eyebrow now. No story there, just still processing that fact.
