The good news…

It’s mid-July and we are harvesting some home-grown produce: lettuce of varied hues, pods of young and succulent broad beans, handfuls of black currants, robust supplies of mangetout (snow peas), and new potatoes.

The first new potatoes of the season. These are Orla and they are absolutely delicious with butter and freshly snipped mint. A taste revelation for all who have only eaten shop-bought spuds!

Mangetout – delicious and prolific.

Nice potatoes – but look more closely. The leaves (or what’s left of them) tell the real story of our sodden summer.
