Picking rhubarb again today. Lifted last of the leeks today. Lots of asparagus. Kale still in but running to seed but some pickable leaves same for perpetual spinach. Cleaned up last of the carrots I lifted last week.

Pulled up the last of the leeks and made a big batch of leek and potato soup for the freezer.

Harvested 8 spears of asparagus for dinner.
Hopefully more to come soon provided the weather doesn't stop them in their tracks.
Cheers HH
Keep digging

Rhubarb for me too, first picking. Huge bucket of parsnips,that's the last of them. Also found quite a few usable beetroot, at least I hope they are

Once cooked & peeled the beetroot have yielded 3 1/2 lbs, here comes the chutney pan again

Are your beetroot tasty at this time of year? I always find them earthy tasting after over wintering in the ground?

Any found are either dug in or added to the compost heap.
Never keep your wish-bone where your back-bone ought to be.

My 9 year old pulled his first rhubarb and cut some chives which he thinks are fantastic in scrambled eggs  :D

Rhubarb for friends we are seeing tonight. They love it. I don't mind it but there has to be a limit to my crumble intake.😂😂

Broad beans, peas, onions, lettuce, spinach, and young celery.  I do like early crops.
