Today's Harvest

It is coming thick and fast down on the allotment at the moment.  These lovely new potatoes were dug today. Left - Epicure.. I couldn't believe the size of these two when I dug them up! still tender and waxy new potatoes when cooked. Middle - Red Duke of York, fantastic flavour. Right - Vanessa, a very good first early potato but not as good a flavour as the other two. Bon apetite!

Wonderful! I see a summer salad or some roasted potatoes with garlic.

The bean seeds you gave us are thriving, I'll send you a picture.

The red flowers of the beans are stunning, no beans here this year but the sugarsnap peas are doing well, i did not know that snippet of info that spraying with water helps set the flowers on beans!
