I’m picking broad beans from the tunnel, which means that sufficient streamlined pollinators found them! I think next year, they need to go in the main bed by the door.
In other harvest news, the carrots have put on a growth spurt and will be providing spring salad colour for a few weeks.
Outside the alliums are putting on their annual firework display. I cut some for the house with a mass of lime-green euphorbia oblongata. Photographing it against the purple potting shed wasn’t great but it was too windy anywhere else!
The rhubarb has hit its stride – I see numerous pots of rhubarb and ginger compote in my immediate future. I’ve used fresh ginger this year as well as honey from the site and it’s been a taste revelation.
What are you harvesting at present?
Chard. I’m harvesting lots of chard (nearly two kilos this weekend) and some rhubarb. Everything else is still thinking about it or waiting for the weather!
Chard for me too, plus some rhubarb (still young plants), rocket flowers and a few leaves and kale from my Daubenton’s kale which I’m really loving.
It’s all looking and sounding good. I gave broad beans a miss this year.
I’m just picking a few rhubarb stems every couple of days or so. xx
I’m harvesting lots of rhubarb at the moment, the plot is quite new so hopefully this time next year it’ll offer more. I love the colour of your shed by the way!
Thanks, the purple potting shed does have a back-story! Enjoy your rhubarb – what do you do with your?
Mostly crumbles, I did make a rhubarb and ginger cake recently which turned out nice!
