My cauliflowers were really suffering from the weeks of no rain, many have wilted and flopped over. I'm really hoping they'll recover, but most are not looking too good.
Technically I picked my first crop of the year on Monday, I thinned my little gem lettuce and made a salad with the plants I pulled, but yesterday was my first proper crop.
I picked a carrier bag half full of spinach leaves and made a spinach and feta cheese pie. Lovely.

Other crops coming along ready soon are strawberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, spring onions and broad beans.
