Slightly cooler today, but quite muggy. Dug up some more potatoes for dinner. 1 looks like it’s got a head, and the kids called it a snowman potato. Haven’t eaten it yet. Also dug up 2 carrots, just to see how they’re getting on. They smell so fresh when they first come out the soil. They’re growing well, but I’ll leave the rest in the ground until I need them. Also pulled up 2 beetroot, they’re a little bigger than a golf ball. Will pull a few more soon and then boil till soft, skin and then freeze. I think this is better than putting them in vinegar, and much less hassle.

    Hi Claire

    Thanks for the tip, hadn’t thought of that. Our Beetroot are about ready to pull and I’ll try this – as you say seems a shame to mask the wonderful taste by pickling them.

  2. Makes me feel hungry for fresh, Claire. Thanks for the tip about the beetroot. I haven’t tried to grow any yet.

    That tip about freezing beetroot is one of the most useful things I’ve heard all year 🙂
