Harvest, Hooray!

Monday, 19 August 2013

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 It was also time to harvest some of the fruit and vegetables we have been growing over recent months.

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

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 suffered 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 is a pic of a few of the things we did manage to harvest at the weekend:

We harvested lots, from parsnips to chard and beetroot to turnips!

We harvested lots, from parsnips to chard and beetroot to turnips! Oh and some potatoes and apples too!


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

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