A short update on the state of my stored veg. The apples are not bad and I have made tasty desserts with them, but some have rotted as expected and many have brown spot which doesn't seem to affect the taste.
The potatoes have all been eaten and they were very good. I've ordered next year's from Jamieson Brothers and have plumped for Kestrel (again) and Romano.
I continue to harvest beetroot despite them being heavily chomped by slugs. I cut out the bad bits.
Finally, the onions have been a disaster this year, most of them have rotted and I have had to throw them away and have had to resort to buying them (the shame). Not sure why I have had this problem this year.
