We have been harvesting some of our produce from our vegetable plots in the Walled Garden this week. We have a tremendous crop of potatoes, some pink skinned and some yellow ( the pink ones are the sneaky ones that kept appearing in amongst our carrots and seeded from the compost heap). We had some peas, beans, tomatoes and a monster courgette. We have some fantastic pumpkins growing but we are leaving them for Hallowe’en.
We made a big pot of soup with the monster courgette (yummy). We made excellent mashed potatoes and used them to make some potato crust quiches. We are developing some excellent cookery skills as we chopped and peeled our very own vegetables.
