Been up the plot a couple of times.  Today pulled most of the scrawny leeks and the undersized celeriac.
Only my second year at the plot and certain that last year's leeks were fatter;  can't remember varieties this year  but remember doing Bandit and Musselborough in 2023.  Think I'll go for Musselborough next time.

Dug up last of the leeks yesterday. Just over 2kg & with stored spuds, they're now several litres of leek & tatie soup in the freezer.
Another 250g of flower sprouts/kalettes.
200g mixed salad leaves from the greenhouse.

Seeing a few menti9ns of getting up the last parsnips I thought it would be a good idea if I cleared the bed ???
Well I stopped at this lot, didn’t realise there were so many still, more for another day too.
Another picking of psb and last but 1 sprout stalk, some were a bit better size wise.

Chard, green onions from cheapo sets planted last autumn and red ones from clearance bargain sets planted a few months ago. I grew them both to have as giant ‘spring’ onions. Asparagus from the garden buried at the back  :)

First spuds of the year. Red Duke of York planted in pots in the greenhouse, but now outside. Really tasty alongside some asparagus and the first Tenderstem broccoli of the season. A few cougettes are starting to swell as well.

Broad beans, down south in Georgia, USA!!

I did manage to harvest a few for eating! I know it's not much, but they have a can't-be-grown-here reputation in my state.  These were grown from seeds of a lone plant that survived a -14 C freeze in December 2022 (Windsor variety, I call these Windsor -'Hardy').

Any other beans I get this year will be saved for next year.

Agua dulce that I tried to also grow this spring never got off the ground.  Maybe try some more of those this autumn?

Added later: I de-podded them and blanched them per instructions online. My verdict: delicious! Nutty, creamy sweetness, like peas, but better.  They will be a protein topping a salad tomorrow.  Mrs. Sub_p is a bit suspicious of unfamiliar vegetables, I'll see if I can get her to try what she calls "those weird beans".

Asparagus from the garden, plus more strawberries. We have been eating those for a week now and lots more to come  :)

Some more cherry tomatoes from the greenhouse (very early dwarf variety sown in January) and I can’t really believe I am saying this in mid June, but the first pick of my Padron peppers.

15 this time plus more baby fruit and flowers on the 2 plants, so I guess it tapas for tea tomorrow  :D
