9.75kg of tomatoes (can't keep up)
4.6kg of zucchini and a handful each of basil and parsley. The biggest zucchini was 20cm long.
These ingredients together with some carrot, spring onions, garlic and seasonings, will make a lovely tomato passata.

My roses are blooming lovely. When I pruned them in winter I thought uh oh I've cut back too much, but they have come back better than ever.
The David Austin roses are both flowering strongly. Their full blown heads are just marvelous.

At Easter we planted out about 15-20 coliban seed potatoes. These have now been harvested. What a good investment - my little trolley was full. We've now sorted them into a hessian bag and its about half full.
We were very lucky to score more seed potatoes, the lovely pink desiree from my cousin. Hopefully we have as much success with these.
