My first harvest this week was something of a bonus, coming from self seeded broad bean plants. My lethargy last Autumn was so great I sowed nothing but happily my failure to effectively clean up last years plants brought these.
I ate them all myself double podded and sautéed with green garlic and feta sprinkled on top. Healthy decadence.
And now for some more intentional plantings:
Before we left on holidays I did manage to plant a few things, one of which were carrots. I thinned these today and shared the results with Mr 5 and the guinea pigs (Mr 5 and I ate the orange bits, Mr 5 and the guinea pigs ate the green bits.)
The other thing I sowed before we left were radishes. They grew a lot more quickly than the carrots:
This will be my lunch.
Note: my son’s wrist is not injured – the bandage is a fashion choice…..
My only other harvests this week were herbs – mint, parsley & oregano. But before I go two other items.

- Can anyone tell one of my readers what is wrong with her tomato plant? I’ve given her general advice like watering, but not over watering, and to ensure the plant is well fed with the right nutrients etc but I’m not sufficiently well versed on diseases to know what is wrong with this plant. Any ideas?
The reader posted this on my Facebook page:
I am a beginner tomato gardener and I have some issues with my tomatoes that I cannot figure out and thought that you might be able to give me some advice. My tomato leaves are drying and breaking off. They are not turning brown but just getting dry and breaking off. They are getting only morning sun and are not too exposed to the sun.
