After the storm which hit us nearly a fortnight ago the veggie patch has recovered a bit. Many of the tomatoes were damaged (you can see in the photo) so I am resigned to not having many this year. I brought a couple of kilos from an old lady selling them at the market on Sunday, she had containers full of them. I will buy more to freeze once cooked with garlic, basil,seasoning and plenty of rape seed oil.
Swiss chard has new leaves growing as has the lettuce and beans. The first picking of beetroot will be made into a beetroot tart tatin. Courgettes haven't done brilliantly this year, however the ones that are coming are growing very quickly, a blink of the eye and they are nearly marrow size.
In between the weeds beetroot and parsnips are growing (or trying) a little job for next week... and still digging up the potatoes, thinning the carrots and finding the onions.
