Here we are again, on a Sunday, looking back at a week when I barely had time to get up to the plot at all. Sob sob.
However I did manage to tempt Miss MBaF up there after picking her up from Nursery on Tuesday. She was persuaded by the prospect of taking the first pickings of carrots.
I had no idea what we would find, but given my general disappointment about this year’s performance I had pretty low expectations.
We positioned ourselves next to a short row of feathery tops, took a firm hold, wiggled and jiggled the plant and ‘pop’!
A lovely, slender, finger-sized carrot. Not chomped, not forked, just right for a sweet mouthful of two.
Both Miss MBaF and I were delighted!
We continued until we had enough for tea. A few were almost non-existent, and some were forked, but the overall result wasn’t too shabby at all.
What was your pick of the week???
