Monday, February 20

Almost same old, same old!

I don't want to bore you by harping on again about sprouts, parsnips and carrots but the fact remains that they are just about the only things that we are still harvesting although this week we also pulled some leeks.
We did pick something different though - some Pak Choi leaves. The plants hadn't grown very big from last year's sowing but there were signs of flower buds so I picked the best leaves.
Probably our first and last pickings as something has had a go at the leaves and most are a bit holey. Still we had a taster!

Whilst we were at the plot this weekend we didn't only harvest. The weather was quite mild for February so we managed to put in two full afternoons' work. 

Martyn has made a video showing some of the activity which he has posted on his blog today here if you would like a peek.

Today I am linking to Harvest Monday over at Dave's blog  Our Happy Acres

  1. You are harvesting more than we are. We have leeks and salad leaves. The PSB is just starting to form sprouts so looking forward to something different soon.

    1. Winter has been mild this year, Sue although these crops usually make it through winter.

  3. My harvests looked quite similar to yours this week - parsnips, carrots, and sprouts. But instead of leeks I had green onions and Portuguese cabbage instead of pak choi.

  4. Its a very different temperature this week and last weekend compared to the previous bitter cold. Great to be able to get ahead of things at the plot

    1. It has been good to get stuck in on the plot, Annie but it seems things are now on hold again due to the poorer weather this week.

  5. Well, let's be honest, parsnips, sprouts, leeks and carrots are about all there is left now, maybe the odd cabbage for some? Great to be able to still harvest home grown produce!

  6. Your same old, same old looks great to me! I've got greens and a few scallions but that's it. I wish I had some root veggies but it will be a while.

  7. I am so impressed with your harvest. I wish I could get things to grow her in the winter. Everything looks delicious!

    1. I am not sure whether it's a case of things growing, Bonnie aor whether it's a case of things just hanging on underground. Although I do think some of the sprouts have swollen up a bit more over winter

  8. You did well with the pak choi. I have been totally unsuccessful with it, despite trying twice.
