First crop

We've picked the first crop from the farm:

No, it's not a full crop, this is more a case of thinning out some beans. (There are about 200 pods there, of two varieties - the purple ones turn green on cooking.) But we're getting there - even if this first pick was an order of magnitude away from what we'll need for the boxes, it shows that we can get something from this soil. They tasted good, too.

Hmm, it's just as well we like brassicas, because even after the white fly has had its go, we'll have silly amounts of cabbage and Brussels sprouts. And assuming we get any rain to help swell them, lots of tatties too.
