Adding a little bit of colour to the plot. Next year I will add more, especially plants that deter slugs. A flower fortress!
These shallots may not look like bananas, but they sure can make your eyes water, unlike bananas.
Excellent crop of garlic this year! A small, smelly triumph.
This is my first time growing fennel. It’s a bit diminutive, but tastes great. Looks a little exotic too!
After a false start, it appears I may get a crop of courgettes after all. Very exciting altogether!
Carrots and Charlotte Potatoes.
This has been a poor year for my potatoes and carrots. The potatoes are ‘scabby’ in more ways than one, and have suffered a bout of blight to boot. The carrot tops and seedlings have been devoured by birds and slugs. Only a few have survived.
well, that looks very OK for a ghastly summer season! Courgettes – bet they’ve got a sweet taste!
Ghastly is a good word for it and ghostly would be a good description for some of my raised beds!
Definite reasons to be cheerful. I’ve had a poor year with carrots too – they just didn’t germinate in early summer when it was so cool. Oh well there’s always next year !
Next year’s carrots will be legendary! I hope.
fantastic veg, definitely something to feel good about. I see you had garlic, didn’t work on the slugs then!
The slugs didn’t touch the garlic… ate everything else though!
It’s been a tough year for everyone, even a small harvest is a triumph!
I’m glad we don’t rely on the plot to feed us, otherwise it would be onion and garlic sandwiches for the school lunches.
Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but my book, The Bellman Chronicles, will be FREE to download on Sept. 10 – 11! Check it out on my Amazon Kindle page.. You won’t be disappointed. And if you can slip me a review, I’d be forever grateful…
It’s in the diary, Hook!
It is good to see your successful crops. Unlike you our sweet peas have been a disaster but our carrots the best ever despite being flooded twice. Strange weather this year!
I’ll swap you some sweet pea for a few carrots!
