With a little help...

Well with a little help, thanks to Anne for digging them up I am now eating my rather yummy salad spuds





Other veggies picked this weekend



Beetroot
Four types of Courgettes (now I did warn you)
Runners
Broad Beans
Mange tout
and Mellissa for drying...










And today I managed to pick a punnet of  blackberries and there are still a few raspberries to be munched too.

I am struggling a bit at the moment with my neck and back so not able to do a great deal, after the much needed rain the plot is rather a thick with weeds  but luckily on the whole everything else is doing ok too.

The hoeing will just have to wait...

but I did made a lovely Courgette and Chickpea Soup

1  huge round courgette
2  leeks
4 celery sticks
1 tin of org chickpeas
salt and pepper to suit
Parsley
Bouillon
Water

Rather yummy with a drizzle of olive oil, a chunk of rye bread and more Lebanese olive oil for dipping...

Comfort food for these windy wet summer days...

  1. Hi Dolly
    lovely recipe.Your things are about the same as here. Courgettes, beetroot and pots.
    Looks lovely.I went way over the top cleaning house for departure. I planted everything possible from my greenhouse.
    Then I cleaned fridge and cooker etc.

  2. I've always meant to try to grow round courgettes, I think there is one called 8 ball or something like it. How lovely.
