Gooseberry glut

I have a glut of gooseberries, but what to do with them? There's only so much crumble you can eat right? Why not try ice cream then? So I did and wow what a deliciously refreshing dessert it makes. I recommend it dear reader. You are reading this aren't you, I wonder sometimes?

The harvest continues with the strawberries, red currants and blackcurrants with which I made a very nice cordial using the big allotment challenge recipe.

The strawberries are not so good this year, I'm going to dig them up and buy new plants but good enough for flavouuring ice cream and cordials. 

Tomatoes are on the way.

And the peas

And the broad beans are probably ready.

The kohlrabi are fattening up. Such a lovely colour.

Finally, I dug up some spuds (kestrel). Yes, there's a good yield and tasty with salads.  

The garlic has been dug up, it's variable with good sized bulbs but also very small ones too.

I've planted some purple sprouting broccoli in the gap.

I have next week off so I'll be harvesting and cooking ... a lot.
