We’ve picked our first few (delicious) ripe strawberries, so expect a harvest as soon as we get another run of warm days.
The cima di rapa/spring rapini should also be ready within a couple of weeks.
We have our first new season kohlrabi, beetroot, potatoes, and spring onions on the list this week. I would expect a more generous harvest of peas and broad beans.
I would like to pull out the last winter brassicas and clear the beds. Can we do a final pick of purple sprouting broccoli on Tuesday, or would you prefer us to hang onto the plants for a couple more harvests?
We’ve picked almost all the limes and larger lemons now. There are still plenty of Myer lemons, oranges, and lemonades.
