Our apples harvest was zilch, just one small apple and one crab apple but we have been given a large box of apples from a friend 'down country,' they didn't suffer the late frosts that we had.
|One of our favourite's, spiced Dorset apple cake.|
The garden peas are now over, we have saved some pods for next years seed, and the curly kale has been planted in the bed that the peas have vacated.
We don't normally grow spring onions, instead we use young shallots, however for the coming year we are giving the spring onions a shot, now is the time to get them started so we will hopefully pick up some seed tomorrow, we both like spring onions and lots of recipes call for them, I think we just got so used to growing the shallots which are so much quicker to crop.
|Better late than never.|
|Love the colour of this one.|
|Soapwort, two months late.|
We are supposed to be in for a mild winter according to Ken Ring the New Zealand weather forecaster, he was certainly right about May being very wet, it was the wettest one in five years, only time will tell if his prediction is right for the winter, here's hoping.
|This weeks flowers, the sweet peas keep on coming.|
