Harvest Monday

Maybe a bit of a cheat as we harvested this on Friday but I thought I'd join in this week and describe what we are harvesting at the moment.
The cabbages are supposed to keep well in a cold frost free place so we hope that they will keep well in the garage. We could have left them at the plot but hopefully they will keep us supplied if the weather stops us from visiting the plot.

There are beetroots sheltering under straw too but we didn't pick any of those.

Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphnes' Dandelions here.

  3. The reds haven't done as well as the green cabbages, Alain. But some of the greens are monsters

  4. I don't think showing what you harvested on Friday is cheating. Surely the idea of Harvest Monday is to display anything you have harvested in the preceding week? That's certainly how I interpret it. And yours is a fine harvest by any measure!

  5. I agree with Mark, I don't believe it is cheating at all. It took me and my garden a week to come up with just handfuls to take pics and post. lol What beautiful cabbages you have there!!

  7. What a fantastic harvest. Those cabbages look wonderful. I do love cabbage, but what with the slugs, the caterpillars and the pigeons, I haven't been brave enough to try any yet. Great leeks too. I had a couple of small ones from the garden today. Small but tasty. Hope you both have a good week Sue.

    1. We use insect netting CJ and leave the brassicas covered. It keeps off the pigeons and all but one or two resourceful butterflies that somehow cabbage to find a way in. We do get some slug damage but not too bad,
