In the afternoon I visited the allotment and harvested quite a bit 590 grams of onions that had been drying out in the polytunnel. 530 grams of that had been growing accidentally. 889 grams of broad beans , the last of this summer's growth. 56 grams of kale , 300 grams of purple podded beans , 3 kilos of courgettes to add to the 1.5 kilos already in the fridge. 311 grams of enormous beans , 2.5 kilos of James Greave cooking apples , 1 kilo of blackcurrants and 22 grams of Jerusalem artichoke pulled up by accident.

Monday 24th August 2015.

Today's harvest was 5 courgettes weighing 866grams. 35grams of curly kale, 70 grams of dark kale, 2 cherry tomatoes weighing 32 grams and 400 grams of purple podded beans.
Other tasks undertaken in the back garden : Sweet peas were dead headed and any pods collected to dry out and collect the seeds.
At the allotment I gathered comfrey to add to the feed water butt. Jerusalem artichokes had their height curtailed . I discovered caterpillars on the brassicas so need to keep an eye on those. In the polytunnel I finally have a few red tomatoes.

12th August 2015

Time can be very limited and at the moment I am very short of my own time with various d.i.y. tasks going on about the house. I did however have time to sort through some of my seeds to see what might be suitable for sowing this month. I currently have chive and parsley seedlings growing in the greenhouse and today I harvested some potatoes from the allotment. My fridge is getting quite filled with my recent harvests so now is the time to find suitable recipes to use up this produce.
