Last night we went to bed with the sound of rain on the roof and amazingly it was still raining when we woke this morning.........14mls yepeee!!
So this afternoon I spent collecting cow/horse manure to dig through the damp soil in the veggie beds, to my surprise there are lots of tiny lettuce seedlings popping up everywhere !
Oh I just can't wait to plant out seedlings and this years garlic crop!
The past week has been one of harvesting the last of....
The last of the delicious apples,their small but tasty and are just the perfect for morning and afternoon tea, not the same as Mulberry/rhubarb muffins but less calories when your counting!
The last of the Basil went into lentil and veggie soup.
The last of the Beans went into the soup too.
The last of the tomatoes into pasta sause.
There was also a first ! Green and Red chillies!
I've only picked and used one green one as I love looking at them in their pots! Erk, I'm thinking after the last couple of cold nights I may be better off picking them all!
And another surprise.... self sown coriander seedlings in the chilli pot!!
For more surprises in the garden head over to Dahpnes and see what others are harvesting from around the Globe.
