Red or Dead

 

roseval

This evening we spent an hour and a half at the plots. I gathered some beans and carrots for tea. We also cut a decent cauliflower to go with them. Half went in the pot and half in the freezer. We decided to dig up the Roseval potatoes and one whole row only gave enough for about two meals for the three of us. What we did get looked ok so we will do the taste test later as they are in the saucepan at the moment. I was unsure about peeling or not but in the end I scraped them and they were still red underneath the thin papery outside layer. I have pulled four sticks of Rhubarb against advice I had read about leaving the plant alone for the first year. Lastly we brought home another lettuce and a few turnips that had shot up overnight it seemed to me.
