Beware coming to visit at the moment as you are likely to go away carrying beans or zucchinis (or both). The potatoes have never been better and even the strawberries have turned on the charm again. I’ve started watering for the first time this year. We started sowing a winter salad garden on the fresh food garden course on Saturday and I’ve finished that off this week. We had the best day for weather for the course of the whole season. And another wonderful group of vegetable gardening enthusiasts. The number of winning recipients of a box of produce continues to grow. Invite your friends to subscribe to this email if you think they’d like the chance to sample some fresh vegetables for free.
If you buy a few packets of seed for some winter crops and sow them in the next few weeks, you’ll have winter greens to pick every day. The cabbage white butterflies are still about so keep up with the bT (Dipel) sprays if it rains. Pick zucchinis, beans and strawberries daily. I made some delicious beetroot fritters to make a change from the very successful zucchini fritters.
