Things are getting proper exciting in the garden now!
I had home grown potatoes!! I planted two lots of two 'casablanca' seed potatoes in pots in March. The plants died back and went yellow which I took as a sign that I should probably harvest the potatoes. I don't have room to grow potatoes in the ground, I just wanted to do a few in pots to give me a couple of meals worth of yummy new potatoes. And that's exactly what I got. These went from pot to plate in about 20 minutes and they were perfect!
There are loads and loads and loads of strawberries in the garden! I've picked these ones slightly unripe because the blackbirds like strawberries too, and I don't mind a bit of sharing but so far they've eaten them all! I'm ripening these ones on the windowsill.
I read somewhere that if you don't cut your autumn fruiting raspberries back the old canes will fruit again the following summer. This is true, my 'Autumn Bliss' are giving me some summer bliss right now. Same story with the blackbirds and windowsill. (Actually, does anyone know if raspberries will ripen on a windowsill, or do they need to stay on the plant to achieve their proper level of juiciness?!)
What have you been digging up, picking and scoffing? I hope your gardens have been giving you lots of yummy things this month!
