After the rocky start to our summer gardening season, we have by stint of watering, persistant snail removal and good summer rainfall, managed to get our best ever crop of beans! I have picked over 2.5 kilos of beans in the past two weeks and over the same time 4 kilos of tomatoes.
Apart from eating a goodly amount of beans and tomatoes I am also doing a lot of saving for future meals. The beans are being sliced, blanched and then frozen …
… I am roasting the tomatoes, to concentrate their sweet flavour, before bottling them in sterilised jars for future use.
The best thing is there are still plenty more where they came from.
