Well, I pulled some parsnips for lunch on Sunday and they were ok really, a good size and no tough core. I hope they are all like that but we'll find out as the weeks progress because I only want to take them up as required, from container to table in an hour would be great.
We have had a bit of a failure with our strawberries this year. There are two plants in pots which we brought with us when we downsized 4 years ago and they have produced very little this year. Someone said that plants cease to be productive after a few years and you should propagate them but up to now we have had no runners to propagate from! Anyhow, I discovered yesterday that I have missed a couple of beauties but the slugs haven't....
I did find this one tucked away amongst the foliage and enjoyed it sliced up on my cereal topped with a dollop of yogurt ;-)
Has anyone else had a problem with strawberries this year? Any tips much appreciated.
Thank you for popping in x
