Its the big day finally, the full home grown salad is ours. The tomatoes are starting to ripen!!
This weekend saw the first bowl of toms heading for salad, the Lidl, Choc Cherry and Gardeners Delight are delicious. A few have split thanks to all the heavy rains but they still taste good.
In fact not a bad harvest all round and to top off today I had the first of the sweetcorn, Ambrosia F1. A two tone number with good sized kernels and good sized cobs, also a good cropper with 2 or 3 cobs per plant. Sweetcorn and home grown salad...result. This is when all the work pays off.
I love this time off year, tomorrow sweetcorn and new potatoes!
We have a quiet weekend coming up so if the rain holds off we'll get a few hours in tidying the farm which looks a little neglected, however productive.
Anyone need a courgette!!!
Happy gardening folks :O)
