This time last year we had lifted our first crop of new potatoes, looking at the potato plants growing away in the ground, I think we will wait a couple of weeks before we try lifting any of this years babies. The beauty of keeping this Blog/Online Diary is that I can go back and do comparisons, and check our progress from year to year. Seemingly by the end of June we had also lifted the first of our Beetroot, it looks like we planted a different type last year as in the photos they are long and slender, this year we have the little round variety. I spy also in the photo a couple of Spring Onions, well those we do have, and I will be picking some for tea tonight.
I must remember to keep adding to the sidebar as we start to eat each of the crops that come to maturity. It's a nice feeling to be going out and choosing our food for tea from the polytunnel and Kitchen Garden.
I hope your crops are growing well, whether you have an allotment, garden or just a couple of pots, there's something SO satisfying about growing, (and eating) your own.
