Harvesting

Welcome to Gail via Bloglovin.

Before going up north to help DS and DDiL move house, we had to harvest some of our produce before it got wasted - a whole colander of beans:

The red pears were beginning to fall so we harvested all of them that were still on our tiny trained tree:
They are rock hard and spent the time in the salad drawer of the fridge. We shall pull out a few every now and then and sit them in the sun to ripen. Should keep us going for a few more weeks.

We still have some russet skinned pear tasting Ashmead Kernel apples to pick plus the Conference Pears on our other tiny trained tree are still swelling. Again plenty there to keep us going for a few weeks.

The beans have gone mad whilst we were away and we still have loads more tomatoes to harvest. Onward and upwards.

 Hope you all have a lovely weekend folks!

  1. You can't beat fresh food like this. It's cost so little except some of your time and energy and it will be delicious. Enjoy.

    1. We refer to them as squeaky beans and love eating them throughout winter sometimes with a dash of mint sauce!

  2. it's so satisfying to harvest loads of produce, isn't it? I love the purple French beans, it's just a shame they go green when cooked! We didn't grow enough of them this year.

    1. Beans and tomatoes have been good this year, rest of the vegetables a waste but a very good fruit year.
