It's going to rain all week so suddenly we have to start thinking differently. For example, we have to get the onions and garlic in now and pick all the rest of the soft fruit. We have cleared all the blackcurrant bushes, freezing the last few kilos as we have no time to juice them.
French beans are still cropping well and I have my eye on a couple of artichokes that might just be edible soon. Meanwhile we have plenty of carrots, courgettes, beetroots, potatoes and in the tunnel we are picking aubergines, rucola, tomatoes and dozens of cucumbers.
We have been making tzatziki with the cucumbers & garlic and I've now tried freezing it (even Thomas said he doesn't think he can eat much more. We are also freezing ratatouille and slices of aubergine that will eventually go into moussaka!
The pumpkins and squash are doing well and I think it is time to start picking butternuts and putting them into the farmhouse to ripen off. They keep longer if they are ripened off indoors. We have some Tom Fox and Atlantic Giants outside the tunnel and they are growing visibly and rapidly especially the ones that we sheltered behind the wind breaker.
