Radish pods! We’ve let a few of our radishes flower, so they would form these lovely crispy pods. Excellent in a pickle, salad, or just as a snack.

Courgettes and cucumbers, with 1 weeks worth of growing time from flowering. The average is about 50g weight per fruit, with courgettes making about 8 fruits each plant, and cucumbers making about 0.8 fruits per plant. The cucumber plants had way higher survivability than the courgettes, and they taste nicer, but they are (so far) only 10% as productive as courgette plants.

Spaghetti squash coming along nicely. Together with sweet dumpling, my favourite squash by far.

The wineberry patch is starting to look pretty good. These fantastically weird rubus berries (raspberry, blackberry etc) are hidden inside the sort of lantern like covering until they start to ripen. They taste like slightly sharp and tropical raspberries, a little like a physalis (cape gooseberry). If enough survive the kids I might try and test their namesake and brew them into wine 🍷

We didn’t have any nasturtium last year, so we made sure we had loads of seedlings this spring. Et voila! Here they come.

Makeshift refrigerator for keeping our harvest fresh a bit longer.

First proper cucumber and courgette haul of the year 🙂 I have kept them as a modest size as I am noticing signs of blossom end rot, and I’d rather not risk leaving them out in the open too long. Including the ones we’ve been snacking on up at the plot, that’s a good 12 cucumbers and about 50 baby courgettes, hopefully every week (maybe every other week), from about 8 courgette plants and about 16 cucumber plants.

Finally, some beans! In all our years of allotmenteering, this has been hands down the worst year for beans. No peas, just a handful of broadbeans and the borlotti are sure taking their sweet time. Anybody else having the same problem?

Trombocino getting its curl on. This is our second attempt at growing them, and our first ever successful one (this far!). Any good recipes out there?
