We went up on the roof to check how our department offspring are getting along and had some quite surprising harvests since last weeks visit…
As you can see, we pulled some HUGE radish from the ground!
I think the size of them took us all by surprise considering the first lot that came out were the usual size that you would expect when you purchase them from the supermarket. I assume that the little heatwave we have had did them some good.
we only pulled up two carrots to see how they are progressing. They definitely need more time harvesting. We got one very small one and one long skinny spiralling shaped one. This just goes to show students how much process of elimination that supermarkets force farms to go thorough before fresh fruit and vegetables end up on shelves. I’m not confident that our spiral carrot would even make it into a ‘wonky veg’ bag.
