Harvest time

Friday’s strong wing didn’t do too much damage on our plot. Runner beans, sweet corn and dahlias all withstood the battering but our cardoon was spoilt although not smashed to the ground as has happened before in windy weather.

Saturday turned out to be another warm day with lighter winds and plenty of sunny periods.

There was plenty to harvest on the plot this weekend.

The weather has certainly delayed some crops. We cut our first dahlia flowers today, weeks later than we would expect. What few Victoria plums we have are just about ready to pick which is more or less the usual time.
