Radishes !

We planted some radishes on our return from holiday and although quite a few have been nibbled by birds and other creatures Mr Shoestring has been able to use a few in salads this week ! Radishes grow really quickly and you can use the leaves as well. We did not know this until Mr Shoestring was looking up a recipe and discovered one for Radish Soup and one for wilted greens. The leaves have a peppery taste a bit like rocket so well worth saving from the compost !

We are still getting a few raspberries from the plot and a have a good crop of leeks to look forward to but the cabbages are looking very sorry for themselves and will have to be covered in netting if we grow them next year !

What's still producing in your garden ?
