I also harvested a couple of Butternut Squash, 3 more Cabbage, a load more Beetroot, both red and orange, as well as the remaining Baby Sweetcorn and some Jerusalem Artichokes, or “Fartichokes” as we like to call them. All in all a good harvest, with lots still remaining in the ground, which can be over wintered if necessary. The weather is still very warm…
