So I took this
and turned it into this.
I was really pleased that my beetroot worked this year. I sowed Boltardy seeds, and true to their name, they came through.
I'm planning to keep one jar, and give the other jar to friends for Christmas.I pulled up three of my garlic bulbs and have hung them in the shed to dry. Every time I go in it smells amazing!
I'll pull the remaining five bulbs up this weekend and hang them too. And I think it's about time to pull the onions and do the same with them.
The gardening is almost done for another year. I'm still getting a good crop of tomatoes. My favourite dish at the moment is onions, along with my own garlic, fried in some half-fat butter, add the tomatoes, add to pasta - and it's so delicious, quick, and low on points (I've been doing Weightwatchers for a while). There are still a lot of tomatoes waiting to come through so I should have some for another couple of weeks, and then I'm hoping the Romas will be reddening. I have one more tub of potatoes to pull up and then they'll be finished too. I might pop some more garlic and onions in over winter.
