WOULD YOU GET A LOAD OF THESE VEG! 24 June, 2006.
A 20 minute pick this morning yielded these and now 3 carrier bags are ready to give away. The freezer is already crammed with courgette and onion friend up for a rainy day, plus bags of deskinned red plums. There's hardly a dent in what's left growing. No wonder my neighbour's been passing over the fence such huge bags of produce every year - it's overwhelming when harvest time comes.
Aren't pomegranate flowers beautiful? This tree was 1.5M when it was planted 2 years ago and it's doubled its size. At last count we have about 10 fruits - the Levante saw off lots of blossom. They grow wild here so I've tried not to kill it with kindness as I have so many others - it's been left to please itself. A bed of rocket (rucula) pomegranate, crumbled goats cheese and a light walnut oil dressing - delish.
