Now Picking

Now picking

Currently being harvested along with abundant lettuce, coriander and rocket are (clockwise from the garlic):

Garlic, planted last December and now just about ready to dry off. Long white icicle radishes. Broad beans, these are the crimson flowered heritage variety. Pods have four or five seeds typically, quite small but tender and well flavoured. Carlin peas, which are usually grown for drying but are pleasantly sweet and tasty picked young and some rather large mange tout, a French variety called Bamby which have very pretty flowers but don't have much else to recommend them although they're perfectly edible.
