Forum home Fruit & veg

Are you eating your home grown fruit and veg yet?

I have been eating strawberries for a couple of weeks, broad beans for the same and new potatoes for a week. Yesterday I brought home onions and garlic and todaym courtesy of a 4 year old, came home with a beetroot! I've been on the rhubarb for a good couple of months

I love this time of year when I can eat so much fresh stuff image 

What are you eating now that you have grown yourself?

    Last night we had our first proper garden dinner, which included potatoes, baby carrots, asparagus and strawberries. Can't wait for the other crops to be ready!

    Been eating rhubarb for a few weeks now, starting with the forced stuff.   Strawberries are just starting and are delicious.   Had our first home grown lettuce today and in the next day or so the first of the kohlrabi will be ready to eat.

    Broad beans are still in the flower stage and the beets and cabbages and chard are nowhere near ready but the fennel is starting to fatten nicely.

    Loads of fruits forming on the blueberries and red and blackcurrants and gooseberries and my newish blackberry and the logan and tayberries are covered in blossom so promise well.    Hoping for a good crop of damsons and some fat juicy autumn raspberries in due course.

    Pumpkins are looking very sad though.  Cold nights not good for them.

    Chives, Basil, Strawberries, lettuce, Rhubarb and Nasturtium leaves.  Not long finished the frozen greens from last year.

    How do you know when purple sprouting broccoli is ready? Also buttersweet lettuce? My hubby is growing both for the first time, it's his first year at trying a veggie plot!
