Lifting Our First Potatoes and Picking Broad Beans

I decided to see if we had any decent sized Casablanca potatoes. Picked our first broad beans of the year to go with the new potatoes.

Harvesting for Dinner

We've started harvesting our calabrese  "Aquiles" and cabbages "Regency" which were plug plants bought from DT Brown.

Brassicas - The Good and The Bad

A look at the progress our early and summer brassicas are making on the plot. Our early bought in plants are doing well but our summer crop of self-raised plants not so well.

Allotment Potato Update Mid June

After testing out our potato sack on Sunday I thought it might be a good idea to update the state of play of the potatoes growing on the allotment.

Greenhouse Summer Mode and a Sack of Potatoes

We made a start this weekend on getting our home greenhouse into summer mode. This meant moving out plants destined for the allotment and planting up peppers and aubergines into big enough pots to see them through summer in the greenhouse.

I also emptied out a bag of Casablanca potatoes which had been planted at the beginning of March and left to grow on in the greenhouse.

Cardoons Before and After the Gale

A bit of video of our cardoons taken on Monday before the gale force winds and on Wednesday afternoon showing the damage to the plants. I need to think of a way to support our cardoons for next year.

Inspecting for Storm Damage

After gale force winds on Tuesday I went down to the plot to check for any damage on Wednesday afternoon.
