Another week and I’ve lost another Pumpkin. I have had them resting on matting but the slugs and other insects have been eating away at it. It had become lose from the vine which didnt help but managed to save some of the flesh and enjoyed roasting it. Using a simple recipe (Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper & my Elephant Garlic: it was roasted on baking paper in the oven for 40 minutes and was rather tasty!).
At Week 27, my 4 remaining pumpkins after another one was “lost” due to Mother Nature and slug damage.
The “Final Four” Pumpkins on my Plot. Lets see whether they last until Halloween.
My rotten Pumpkin but tasty…
In Week 27, the damaged pumpkin (which started to rot and get eaten by slugs /insects) has been roasted with Elephant Garlic, Salt & Pepper.
And my penultimate Main Crop Potatoes was harvested completely this week removing the last five plants of Setanta Potatoes. I still have to harvest Caro Potatoes (and keep monitoring my Christmas ones).
The final Setanta Potatoes harvested from my plot. (The raised bed will be used for over-wintering Onions and maybe Garlic).
My final harvest of Setanta Potatoes in Week 27.
In Week 27, lots of green growth of Xmas potatoes: Maris Peer and Charlottes.
New Bella Italiano Garlic (from eBay) needs planting as they’ve already started to sprout leaves!
