First Crop Of The Season

The allotment is coming along well at the moment, thanks to the rain last weekend.

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.

Spinach: first crop of the year.

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