And here are our very first yellow Courgettes. It seems like just yesterday when I planted them out at Haddock's, and already we have a harvest. I know they're tiny, but the first ones never grow much bigger. It's a question of picking and eating them, or losing them. There are more already.
Next crops, Tayberries and Broad Beans.
Those cherries look good. Pears and gold kiwi fruit on the menu here and plentiful greens in the garden. They have grown so fast.ReplyDelete
I shall pick some more today. The ones above were rather tasteless. Maybe they weren't totally ripe.Delete
A good cherry is hard to find here. I usually find them sour. They were wonderful in Germany and Austria, wherever they came from.ReplyDelete
We have a yellow cherry that is usually very good, but we'll have to wait a while for them to ripen.Delete
I do not remember when I ate a fruit or a vegetable that was just picked up, the taste seems to be very different.ReplyDelete
I'm just back from picking some more Cherries. I'm afraid they are not very good; they have no flavour. Strange!Delete
Potatoes, Japanese onions and Lettuces we are harvesting at the moment.ReplyDelete
I grow none of those. I've noticed that the Potato crops (elsewhere) are looking very good this year. I haven't really got the space for them. Everything else doing very well.Delete
I think the later (June) cherries are always sweeter.ReplyDelete
I do hope so. They can't be as bland as the above.Delete
Soon it will be courgette ohs and ahs from your readers.ReplyDelete
Good to see that you were the first!Delete
Oh, envy! (but all my own fault as the new bed is still to be dug) Haddocks is an inspiration to us all, well doneReplyDelete
I'm amazed how quickly everything has grown this year. You can hardly turn your back, and they've doubled in size!Delete
I love yellow cherries which were all we got when I was a child .... now we only get the black ones apart from a couple of weeks when M&S have yellow cherries and you have to take out a mortgage to buy them !!!! Enjoy your harvest Cro. XXXXReplyDelete
I like them too; Lady M prefers hers to be red. More for me.Delete
Looking forward to see your harvests during the coming months.ReplyDelete
I got a few flowers on my tomato plants and my herbs are growing well. The weather has been wild with tornadoes and storms so I will be grateful for anything.
Our weather has been perfect for growing; I'm expecting great things. It makes a change!Delete
I went looking, again, and suddenly realize "courgette" simply is French for squash! Groan. Here, squash is Indian for squash.ReplyDelete
I've also learned zucchini grow an inch a day, and the smaller the squash, the more flavorful.
Yes, I really should write Courgette/Zucchini; I imagine the English version would be 'Baby Marrow'.Delete
