Today's Harvest

Is small in comparison to the amount of produce some friends are getting, but this is Year One, and it tastes great.



There was also a very large bowl of strawberries but they didn't make it past breakfast time accompanied by brioche French Toast and creme fraiche; it's a tough job but someone's got to do it!

  1. It's a heck of a lot more than I've harvested so far :o)

  2. Hey - well done you, especially when you think that the potager didn't exist this time last year!

    Courgettes fried in butter & garlic? And do you have enough strawbs for a little jam making to bring this summer freshness into the depths of winter? (Mind you, my jars of 'summer freshness into the depths of winter' will have to be accessed via hammer & chisel if the set of the first pot is anything to go by.....hey ho!)

  7. Thank you all, courgette was delicious griddled with olive oil and plenty of salt & pepper, really didn't need anything else.

  8. What great colours, and what a lovely photo. I love to eat lots of different colours! That will do you good! PS Ollies sunflowers are doing well, about 4ft tall now.

  9. What are the courgette varieties you're growing? They look fantastic. The only ones of mine that have got to the eating stage so far are the F1 Cavili, they are very pale green and taste almost like gherkins (great pan fried in olive oil with tomatoes and a spoon of dijon mustard, salt and pepper). Im also growing some 'black beauty'but they are far too small to pick yet

  10. Thanks Alex, I have one Black Beauty that has not yet produced anything. The other two plants came from a friend who gardens with more enthusiasm than organisation - no idea what either of them are!

  11. Alex, looking at this post from Matron:

    I'm guessing these are Defender and Soliel.
