Mid-July Harvests

As most readers will be aware, I love "Harvest basket" style photos, so this week, with several harvests available I took the opportunity to take some...

The yield this time as 2.148kgs, from 4 seed-tubers in 2 x 35-litre tubs.  A modest return, I'd say, but they are lovely potatoes. Some of them got scrubbed-up to have their picture taken.

This was my first little harvest of carrots. They are from a mixture called "Harlequin".

With 6kgs to go at, we still have quite a few Broad Beans left, so I dragged some out of the fridge just for the photo-shoot!

Putting them all together, I got this:

These photographs epitomise what my garden produces - never a huge amount, but usually good quality!
