Harvest Wednesday…

not the traditional harvest and show day in blogland but who cares….life is happening quite fast over here with home schooling killing me and little one not cooperating much  in full swing and other mundane things….but it’s all good…nobody is complaining….

Do you see those colourful peppers? I’m so chaffed with them….I’ve been getting plenty of green ones but when it comes to read or yellow not so many….when I let them on the plant to colour they go off….so happy with them…

I’m going to try making green tomatoes chutney….the ones outside are not going to turn red anytime soon and we are running out of time ….green tomato chutney it is folks…waste not want not and all that….

and now back to the story of 6….or a poem or two….hard to tell with the little one…thanks god for the independent 15 year old homeschooler….

our first cabbage and our first peppers too!!!! and notice the little aubergines? not your average purple ones but still…..the tomatoes are at their best right now…the ones outside are growing brown cracks…not sure what they are but still edible and delish….the ones inside are just perfect…

lots and lots of chard and kale too….the courgettes are not coming fast and furious anymore but still getting one every two days ….definitely on the way out though….amazing how many courgettes one can get out of five plants…subhan’Allah

I love this time of the year in the garden….

Tidying up…

at the allotment….three raised beds ready for the potatoes….added some compost full of nutrients to the beds….let the soil absorb all that goodness before planting the potatoes in mid March….
