Harvest Time On Our Plot

Hello everyone...welcome to a new week.
I'd thought I'd share our harvest from yesterday. 
If you are a follower then you'll know we only started the veggie plot back in early February, so we're thrilled with the outcome so far.
Here's a quick recap for anyone who may have missed the birth of the plot.
(click Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3)

In case you can't make out what's in the white bowl... it's blackberries.
Have a great week everyone...have fun and keep smiling!

  2. That's an amazing yield, look at those sting beans or snap peas? I'm never really sure what to do with black berries because they can be so sour.

    1. Thanks Jeanna, we're really pleased with all that the new veggie plot has produced.
      I find if the black berries are not fully ripe they can be a little sour, but they go perfectly in an apple pie or apple crumble...Yum!

  4. Welcome to All Seasons Neesie! How serendipitous - yesterday black berries was on my grocery list because I wanted to try out a new recipe, and the temperatures have cooled off enough to do an oven dish! Hope you know that All Seasons is taken in the broadest sense of the word, like seasonal feast, experiences, vacation. We're looking forward to see more of every ind of plot you have in mind:)

    1. Isn't it just Sue...we are thrilled that our first year has nearly kept us self sufficient in produce. Only a few failures but I think the weather played a big part in that. It's been rather a wet summer here.
      Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a great week ahead.

    1. This was one days harvest Jenn...we've had snap peas, broccoli, cabbage, onions, carrots, parsnips and garlic too!
      I'll have to give those recipes a whirl. I adore the roasted beetroots!
      I'll remember to set another place at the table. I normally always have an extra portion left over when I cook. Not sure why but it's a fact!

    1. I know Jennifer...it initially was incredibly hard to clear the plot and organise it but it kept my newly retired hubby well occupied. He's been thrilled that we've had such successes.
      Not had to purchase any tatties since the early ones appeared :D
