A very tiny harvest

We didn't go to the Plot last week, mainly because we had a few days out visiting various places and shopping for now much needed thermal underwear. 

The days that we planned to visit the plot were cold and miserable and so we opted for curling up on the sofa. Martyn started going through and editing  the masses of steam engine video that we took on Saturday and I did a jigsaw puzzle and read an ebook on my iPad.

I wasn't going to write a harvest Monday post, until Martyn reminded me that we had been harvesting watercress, and I thought that it was worth mentioning that the watercress is still flourishing despite a couple of early morning temperatures falling to around zero degrees. It will be interesting to see just how low a temperature it can survive and whether the roots will survive over winter even if the top is knocked back.

Then when I popped into the greenhouse I  had a little surprise. Most of the greenhouse tomato plants have been cleared, but a couple in pots that still had tiny fruits, were left in the unlikely event that the fruits grew and ripened. In fact that is exactly what had happened and there were three ripe Golden Crown tomatoes just asking to be picked - so I did just that.
So there we have it our very tiny harvest.

As usual I am linking to harvest Monday hosted on Dave's blog Our Happy Acres
