summer – where did it go?

Where did summer go?  We started gloriously, with a modest harvest of garlic in June…

cimg4775.jpgFollowed by good crops of calvero nero (black Italian kale), beans, courgette, onions, and an almost impossible steady supply of delicious sweet blackberries.

We’ve also had good crops from the cherry tomatoes – both yellow and red.  The red ones were round and sweet.  The yellow ones tear-shaped and equally delicious.  Yum!

The photo below, showing home grown white onion, garlic, swiss chard, calvero nero, beans, broccoli and a yellow zucchini, also features R’s apricots, which he gifted to us as he had bumper crops.  And a sieve full of blackberries.
