Harvests 2015

Several of my friends thought it would be a could idea to keep a record of what we actually harvest from our gardens and make notes on the quality of the veg. So this page is being used to note down what I collect each day. We are two thirds of the way through the growing season but we have to start somewhere, so here goes with the most recent being added to the top of the list. In any case, the so-called "growing season" never really ends as we have all the lovely winter veg to look forward to.

I have also created a Google docs spreadsheet listing the weights and running totals for the season.

7th September 2015

Squash of some sort. Possibly a pumpkin? It weighed in at 5lb 11 oz (approximately 2.6 kilos) and we are still munching our way through it over a week later. The flesh is orange with a slightly nutty, sweet taste and retains its structure when cooked. We have several of these in the garden that emerged from our compost. We don't knowingly buy pumpkins but must have done so from an "assorted" squash box. 

5th September 2015

Six and a half bottles of elderberry syrup made and ready for use. Not a harvest from our garden but collected from nearby trees.Officially it is for dealing with coughs and colds but it is also delicious poured over ice cream or used as a mixer.
