Well, I'm still off work, the Doc told me I may be off for another week, so I'm still resting up (and feeling mighty bored with being housebound), but Lee has been working hard, not only doing his paid work, but looking after me and going to the plot to weed, feed, water and harvest! I just wish my back was better so I could go and help him, hopefully another week and it'll be better, but til then I gotta rely on my fab hubby!
The piccy above shows just what he harvested on Wednesday, just 1 days harvest!! Another 4lb of rasps, another 6lb of broad beans, 1lb tomatoes, another 1 lb of french beans, another bunch of spring onions, another large iceberg lettuce, another 1/2lb of peas, 2 large caulies, several spears of PSB and 1 large head of broccolli plus 25 more courgettes, of between 1 and 3lb each! Just about ready to harvest now on the plot are the overwintring garlic, the first batch of overwintering onions (about 100 onions), the second early spuds, more broccolli, more caulies, more cabbages, more toms, the first of the peppers, more broad beans and french beans, more radish and spring onions, lots more raspberries, more strawberries and of course, lots more courgettes!!
