Cerinthe, Chamomile, Our First Proper Harvest
Our winter squash have started to set fruit! I’ve dedicated two whole beds to winter squash because it’s a vegetable we both love, there are so many varieties I want to try, and you just can’t find that many varieties in the shops in the UK.
Our first proper harvest, where I picked enough for us to be able to make a meal. The potatoes did a few meals. The basket was Mum’s, she bought it in a market in Brittany years ago, when she and Dad still had an allotment. Dad gave it to me a few months ago because he doesn’t use it.
My dahlias have been through the wars. The slug wars. Some of them are looking better than others, and a couple of plants look like they might start making flower buds soon. We’ll see.
