Some spinach beet, 15 Carrots (late sown so nice and tender), 3 big parsnips and 8 mini ones, a double handful of sprouts, 2 winter radish, all from the allotment. Some laxton superb apples and a bunch of watercress from outside my front door. Fantastic!

Still picking Autumn Bliss raspberries - it must be their position as they've been a great success this year.  Picked some spinach and mizuna.

Yesterday I picked the following out of the poly tunnel for this week's salads at work: mizuna, cos lettuce, oak leaf lettuce, swiss chard, beetroot (the roots aren't forming so I'm using young leaves in salads), spring onions, mooli and corn salad.

Not exactly harvested today (more like rescued from the greenhouse where they had been left to dry!) but the pic shows one of the 3 remaining Sweet Spanish Yellow onions I grew from seed this year (with the obligatory 50p coin for scale!)

It ain't perfect (neck's too thick) but it's still in good condition and considering my original 40 seedlings reduced to 10 miserable "chive seedlings" by the time I planted them outside in April and then just sat there doing nothing for a couple of months I am going to regard it as "a result!"  ;)

Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Thanks Paul!

Having still got plenty of seeds left I suppose I'll have to have another go next year to see if I can do better, even though it's not the best use of limited space - they were sown at the beginning of February and I finally yanked those last few out in late October (still growing!)

Yesterday I also found a Mikor shallot near the table I used to dry and sort out my crop back in August. Despite being outdoors on the concrete for 4 months it was in almost perfect condition apart from a tiny slug hole (in fact in far better shape than some of those carefully separated, dried, stored in a cool, dark place etc!)  ::)

If we have a bit more sun next year, you should do well with them - cos that's a good result for a bad year  :)

My SSY were doing well until the White Rot claimed them, so I think that, as their name implies, they just need some nice weather. Fingers crossed  8)

A couple of parsnips and a dozen leeks.  I only grow a few because I am growing in my little garden but Dad will chop them all up and put them in the freezer so that we can still use them in soup even if we get a lot of snow. ;)

Still picking Red Drumhead cabbages - we have it to go with dinner today. :) I still have quite a few leeks to pick and there are carrots in the polytunnel. :)

Some carrots dug from the frosted ground.  Managed to fight the temptation to lift a parsnip

Leek and potato soup planned for Monday says Mrs Plots... :happy:

                                               I had better find time to make some bread I guess.

Just wandered down to see if there will be anything to pick for festivities or not.
A few parsnips still in, a minicole for coleslaw, some lovely swede and leeks.....all the brussels are blown :( so I'll have one of my savoys instead.
All in all not as bad as I thought it would be :)

But the surprise was a bright green Romanesco broccolli head............I'd given up on them!
So it was brought home for tea  :blink:
