Monday's Harvest is kindly hosted by Daphne at Daphne's Dandelions and is a day to share what you have been harvesting/cooking from your garden or plot..........
Pretty happy with my first pickings of my first ever crop of Borlotti Beans.
They were planted just after Xmas quick to germinate but very slow growing, late Febuary i replanted them into my new garden plot watered them well with a little liquid feed and then left them.
Last week when doing a little weeding i noticed how healthy the plants were growing and then i noticed the pods............i was so excited............
There were only a few large ones but quite a lot of small ones coming along.
As there's only a couple I'm not to sure what to do with them now, peel them and then freeze the beans and then just wait until the next lot are ready to pick?
Advice most welcome.
Another first time crop i have been happily picking is Pak Choi
Don't know why i haven't planted this before its so easy to grow and tastes great in salads, stir-fry and soup.
Are you growing any first time crops? Love to hear about them..............
