The harvest continues on the plot -carrots, kale, banana shallots, 1 mooli radish (simply for a taste test!) and two parsnips. I even picked a mini tub of blueberries but they didn’t make it home 🙂
The radish was delicious…hot, hot, hot…so if you prefer a mild tasting radish then avoid moolis! We ate most of today’s harvest for Sunday lunch. Simply delicious! This is my first year growing and eating kale – not only will I grow again next year but I highly recommend this disease resistant, yummy crop to anyone that hasn’t tried it. I’ll leave the rest of the parsnips until after the frost. I’m told that the cold will turn the starches into sugars which will sweeten the parsnips further.
I will have to clear the vulnerable crops such as celeriac and carrots soon and put them into store before the air turns too cold! The cabbage is looking really good though so they can stay put for a little longer.
The clock is ticking but I still have daylight at the end of the working day (if I’m lucky an hour) to tidy up the plots of any old crops in preparation for next year.
Today was a crisp, sunny day (well mostly) so I had to go for it. I was lucky to have a little help from the family today too…offers of help are always greatly accepted!
The flowers continue to put on a splendid show on the plots which is always welcome sight!
Great day’s work on the plots with the family. I hope you are having a great harvest and that your next growing season is a beauty!
