With all the sunshine we’ve been having lately mtp has put on a growing spurt. Compare this picture to Week 15 – crazy huh? At the moment we are mostly harvesting lettuce (all types) potatoes (and boy are they good), raspberries, gooseberries (of course), spinach, courgettes and radish. The peas have been got at by the crows so we might be lucky if we have a handful left of those. We’re waiting on the cherry tomatoes and we’re hopeful for the cucumbers and aubergine. Strawberries came to nothing (next year maybe?) and the red and black currants are doing their thing but we haven’t harvested them yet. The battle of the bindweed is ongoing. There have been sustained casualties (on both sides) but good will win over evil and the final confrontation is just around the corner. And that’s the latest week-by-week update.
