    No courgette glut for me this year . For the first time ever they were pathetic... but I have gallons of passata , even got toms frozen red and green (for pickle) . Also a glut of chillies and beans (runners and french ) all either frozen, dried or in pickle ......apart from the courgettes and the lack of red plums, this year has turned out better than I thought it would due to the sploshy start......

    Pickled this year's first crop of radishes today. Boil vinegar, sugar, salt, peppercorns and pour over sliced radishes and onions. Hope it's nice.

    WoW! My radishes are but sproutlings at the moment!
    You may say I'm a dreamer... But I'm not the only one...


    I'm an official nutter - an official 'cropper' of a nutter! I am sooooo pleased to be a cropper! Hurrah!

    Yes I got lucky - sowed them under a mesh mini tunnel back in mid-March and forgot about them!

    By the "more than two" definition of 'glut', my single gooseberry is not anything to post about!

    But the plums are doing pretty well. There's a branch about two meters long which -at the start of the season- was about a foot above my head, is now hanging at eye level, covered in miniature green plums no bigger than the finger nail on my ring finger

    So probably jams, and I've been looking at home brewing too.

    Lettuce soup is lovely and so is braised lettuce.
