2017 Harvests and flowers!

Postby clothmama » Mon May 01, 2017 7:59 am

Only radishes so far but they are pretty good (although a bit hot after all the dry weather!)

and some of the lovely spring flowers, love the irises, I have 3 different shades of purple :love:

White onions, started using them from the ground a couple of weeks ago (including the greens)

Harvested the lot a week ago:

And the shallots:
Image
Just love going out with a basket to get the ingredients for dinner:Image
This was the best meal, we had a BBQ with salad and new potatos with butter and mint and other than the meat I'd grown it all :love: :yahoo:
Image
First dinner of rainbow Swiss Chard night before last - was yum with butter, salt and pepper:

The gorgeous little yellow Mirabelle plums that I'm making into jam - gorgeous eating too - still lots on the tree though :panic:
Image

I had 3 or 4 times those of purple plums, did lots of eating and 3 lots of jam but fogot to take a picture!

My garlic that I've cleaned off a bit (they were very muddy as we'd had but rain but had to get them out as they may have rotted) - 1.250 grams - not sure how many bulbs but pretty happy with number that worked, just a bit sad they are not bigger but i think this was an issue with the very dry April / May really. Should be good for at least 6 months of garlic I'd say - hopefully can grow more next year to get a full years supply! I've already used a few of them too.

Just roughly counted them and there are about 36 so definitely half a year as I use about 1 bulb a week and some are small.
