I wasn't free to go to the Hill over the weekend, so last night I was keen to see what ten days of warm & wet weather has done to the plot.
I was delighted that all the crops are growing apace, but not too much in the way of weeds - brilliant!
I hadn't planned to stop to do anything bar harvesting whatever was ready, but ended up thinning the annuals (OK - the odd thistle too) out of the flower border at the front, just to give it a tidy up.
I dug up a couple of POTATO plants (int kidney & mona lisa) for a couple of handfuls of new spuds, then whipped over the BROAD BEANS (saved) where I found plenty of 6" pods, perfect for shelling for fingernail sized beans.
The sweet peas are in full bloom & so a good handful of those came home with me too, one of the LETTUCE (dazzle) & a small armful of rhubarb sticks.
Star of the show, however, were these magnificent cauliflowers, hiding in their leaves - they have been growing since the autumn in with the curly kale, and have been no trouble at all, & are a good 10" across each head.
Not having anything planned for them, kitchen wise, but reluctant to risk them going over, I picked them both & have broken them into florets and frozen them - I'm planning a cauliflower cheese bonanza at the weekend!
