Courgettes, beans, tomatoes and kale (from my perennial kale forest!)

not shown in pic because I ate them earlier was a good snack of raspberries and some salad leaves plus coriander for my hummus and salad pitta.

And I am in Scotland, half way between Glasgow and Edinburgh, I get a very short season here.

Show us yours, and tell us where you live so we can compare notes. :brave:

Do these count?

Also four pounds of blackberries (to go with a similar quantity harvested yesterday, now fermenting), a pound or so of spuds, two bolted fennel and a quantity of peas too small to mention. Oh, and a few spring onions, a bay leaf and some skinny celery, to go with the mushrooms.

Take nobody's word for it, especially not mine! If I offer you an ID of something based on a photo, please treat it as a guess, and a starting point for further investigations.

OK, up on that bar there is now a photobucket button, get the URL of the image from the embed code, place inbetween code.

if that don't work let me know what the error says.

Well John, after a little more testing in the polytunnel growing thread I have discovered that I do not need the photobucket tags now, but I can only post one image at a time

Not what you were expecting, but my harvest just the same.
Baked beans made with home grown haricots and my tomatoes.
And ... no sugar and very little salt.

Those tomatoes look similar to something I grow, I saved the seeds from a tomato I bought in the organic market, do you know what they are called? I have never found out what they were
