The Green Man - Harvest Monday

A quick round-up of the last few days worth of pickings:

The Green Man

He's a bit friendlier (and a bit blurrier) without the sweetcorn (which was really tasty - Sweet Nugget F1)

Crystal lemon cukes
Gherkins and cukes
Tomatoes
Lots of tomatoes

 

And finally, gherkins

Which went into these...

Phew!

A prettier photo to finish (alas not home made bread)

  1. Lovely (and creatively displayed!) harvests. Bread, homegrown veg/pickles & cheese - delish!

    1. Thanks! I'm trying different ways of making gherkins, vinegar vs natural fermentation, the first vinegars are just about ready now so will be doing a taste test soon, I've liked the first fermented ones and you don't have to buy vinegar.

  3. What whimsical pictures! But didn't anyone ever tell you not to play with your food?

  5. Love the veggie photos. They made me laugh. And that is my kind of lunch. I tend to the simple. Not always, but often enough.

    1. Hehe, glad it made you laugh :) Yes I like it simple most of the time, keeps the washing up down too! My afternoon snack pot for work currently consists of a huge stack of cooked beans with a whole cucumber sliced lengthways and a big dollop of mayo, nice n simple
