Today’s Harvest

I harvested the first bag of potatoes today.  Not a huge harvest but I’m happy with the result. I plan to boil the baby ones for dinner, add a knob of butter and mint from the allotment.

I also picked some silverbeet, kale, beans and parsley.

Happy gardening.

    You just can’t beat new potatoes with butter.

    The little ones are the best treat. I miss them already. Now I’ll have to wait until next spring again. Enjoy!

    WOOT Jean! What a wonderful harvest! We just planted out 2 veggie beds full of vegetable futures (hopefully 😉 ) and can only begin to imagine a crop like yours. I adore potatoes…if they were in human form Steve might have a problem! I can actually imagine the sweet tender taste of them steamed and dripping in minted butter and its only 5.44am! I am going to get planting some silverbeet and kale in some more garden beds (yet to be made) soon. We are going great guns with our veggie garden bed production but today its steadily raining on Serendipity Farm and so I think we might have to postpone our blackberry culling event and focus on cooking indoors 🙂 Cheers for another amazing and inspirational post 🙂

    My mouth is watering just looking at your harvest…another 8 months until I have new potatoes again!
    Well done

    One of the first treats from the garden is when we have creamed new potatoes and early peas. My mouth is watering now.
