After weeks and weeks of sunshine we've finally had some decent rain one of the sunflowers open yesterday, I'm amazed that none of them went over in the gales unlike the sweetcorn.
Which luckily we were able to upright & fingers crossed no harm done, in fact a couple of days later we saw the corn had started to grow.
Flowers are starting to come on the Aubergines, this year I have them in a little plastic greenhouse as I didn't get to pick any aubergines last year when they were outside.
We've harvested some of the potatoes. L normally won't eat potatoes but as she helped with these she actually ate them & asked for more.
We've now picked 21 courgettes so as well as having them in meals I've made courgette & oregano scones, chocolate courgette cake, courgette clafoutis & chutney. I also swapped a couple for some blackcurrants.
A bumper day on Sunday - turnips, baby carrots (needed thinning), some shallots, French beans, courgettes, Pak choi,rhubarb & Lavender. The only thing I bought for our roast was the meat & the breadcrumbs for the stuffing.
I'm hoping that the sunburst pattypans will be ready this weekend I found a nice looking recipe so can't wait to try it out. Have to make another chocolate courgette cake too, requested by elder daughter who doesn't eat courgettes but managed to eat most of the other cake!
