Harvesting, Hooray!

I had a really fun weekend here at Vialii Towers with M&D. On Saturday it was really quite wet so we stayed indoors and did lots of fun arty projects with crayons, pencils, paints and glue! On Sunday the weather was a lot better which meant we could get outside and give the garden a bit of a tidy, and also, pick some of the fruit and vegetables we have been growing over recent months.


Sometimes what we were picking
didn't quite make it to the basket...


Now, regular readers will know that we had quite an array of vegetables we were growing this year. Some things didn't do so well like the spring onions 'cos someone kept climbing up onto the veg beds and lying there (1) and the cavolo nero as the caterpillars decided they were going to get in there first (2). Not to worry as we still had loads more things we were growing. Here are a few of the things we picked at the weekend.


We dug up LOTS of lovely Maris Peer potatoes


There's all sorts in here including rhubarb, turnips,
yellow courgette, parsnips and beetroot!
And our first tomato of the year!
We all loved the apples and had a picnic on the grass!

We had a scrummy dinner with the potatoes and Mummy roasted the beetroot, parsnips and courgette. Then she made a rhubarb crumble and a lovely Rhubarb & Lemon Cake

Hugs & kisses,

1. I can't imagine who that could have been!

2. Next year I am going to insist that we cover the kale in netting before the butterflies can lay their eggs and the caterpillars get munching!
