We managed a plot visit on Saturday with the intention of replenishing our fresh vegetable stock. For various reasons it's been a while since our last plot visit so we weren't sure that we would have any vegetables in a fit state to harvest, however we were pleasantly surprised and came away with a sizeable haul.
The beetroot were the biggest surprise as we had expected the roots to have been frosted. The layer of straw with which they were covered seems to have done its job.
A soup making session is planned for this week!

PS: The seed potatoes have now been set out in the greenhouse to start chitting. Martyn has written about this on his blog here and also listed the varieties that we are trying. So far that is as far as we have come to any seed sowing or planting!
