On to making the next batch of applebutter! So far we’ve made some classics, with just honey and some with almond liquor, and another batch with a good sprinkling of cinnamon added. My favourite has to be the ‘East meets West’ recipe, with cinnamon, staranise, cardemom and just a hint of black pepper. Apples from our trees and spices from Vietnam, courtesy of the other rabarbie. The fragrance of the apples caramelising…mmmm….heaven.

New life. It looks like the artichoke has survived our (accidental) rigorous pruning.

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?

Tomatillo thriving, despite or maybe because of the strange weather we’ve been having. Looks like we’ll be enjoying salsa verde before long.

Broccoli!!! Or icky green flowers, as my nephew calls them. Though these are most definitely not icky.

Purple rain and Frieslander potatoes! I’ve always been a fan of Prince, but I assure you this is a complete coincidence.
