1/2 a punnet of tomatoes, 3 of the largest cucumbers & a huge trug full of mixed French beans

Turned out to be 5 1/2 lbs of French beans & that was just the tunnel ones, still need another harvest from the outside ones  :lol:

No toms yet - they're St Pierre and in the greenhouse.  Maybe being French they need special treatment:  a drop of absinthe in a foliar spray rather than Epsom salts.
French beans are thriving though.

Decided to get up a couple of roots of Charlotte’s weighed in at 3.8kg. Went back this evening & got the rest of the Charlotte’s up, not weighed them yet but some were enormous, some very odd shapes though.

Last year i got probs 2 courgettes and 1 feed of beans.  This year, the beans have gone into overdrive:  runnners and 3 colours of French.  Courgettes not quite so productive - they're yellow ones and heard that's the way they are.

A couple of yellow courgettes, peas and a cauli. Also dug up a King Edward potato plant to see what they were like since most of the foliage has died back. Around 15 useable tatties off it

Last night I collected some runner beans and french beans from the plot.
Picked tomatoes at home too.
It’s pouring now so think I will hide indoors.
Keep digging

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers...

Well, it's really just a bowl of peppers, not a peck.  And they aren't pickled, not yet. They are Biquinho peppers, and I will pickle them, to make "sweety drops".

They look great! How spicy are they?

They are very mild, though they do have a barely noticeable degree of heat. They are at the very lowest category of the Scoville index.  I only notice a hint of heat when I actually concentrate while eating one of the Biquinho peppers raw.  I first ate these as a sweet pickled pepper (sweety drop, in a salad) and didn't notice any heat at all.
