The carrots are still going strong! I pull up a bunch like this about once a week, but there never seem to be any less in the ground. It’s amazing how many carrots you can get from even a small space.
As usual, this batch was a mixture of nice regular ones, with some short dumpy ones and a couple of knobbly ones. They’re all edible though, given a bit of care in preparation.
You probably saw a few days ago that I had picked a big basket of chillis – of course I’m including this in my harvest tally for the week:
With the weather remaining fairly mild (no frosts yet), the late-sown French Beans are giving me a small but very welcome harvest. This batch was 105g – not a lot, but enough for a 2-person serving.
That’s all the harvests I can muster for this week, but I’m expecting to be able to show off my first Parsnips pretty soon. I usually leave it until after the first frost, because frost is alleged to make the Parsnips sweeter.
I’m linking my post to Harvest Monday, hosted by Dave at Our Happy Acres.
