    Prunes?! Are they not dried plums? What do you grow that you call prunes?

    Prunes are dried plums, but they are from a particular variety of fresh plums – prune plums. They are delicious fresh and dried.

    I picked another zuch today, some corn but the cobs were near empty too much rain I think, and 2 beans as well :laugh:

    I’m watching the cucumbers as they seem to have survived the rain.

    Yeahhh! I wanted to find some clip art of a zucchini in a baby beanie for that post……it’s growing well, might pick it tomorrow before something else finds it.That plant is a true survivor – the split apricot tree flattened it and then it had to keep going through several deluges , but that may be the only zucch I get.At least it will be all mine, DH can’t stand them.

    It’s an extra joy to pick home grown when the shops are empty.French beans with dinner this evening, fritatta with “the girls'” eggs, my herbs and first potatoes, and Poppy’s milk.Also last of the spring onions to add to herbs to make a sauce out of the good bits of cherry tomatoes, but many are beyond any use except compost due to fruit fly.I’m finding the chooks are not too keen on them even before the rotten stage.

    Even though most of my garden died in the flooding I picked 3 zuchs, 600gr beans, 4 spring onions and 2 cucumbers.

    We managed one button squash and then found 3 hiding carrots which we grated into our rissoles (bit too woody to eat as they were).

    Hey Judi! Some GOOD news! So glad you are still finding some veg.600gr beans was a good haul!Just hoping we are not going to cop it again tonight but I think we might – severe weather warning still current for this area and I can see lightning to the SE.

    10.06pm just checked the radar again. Not looking good for you Judi…….

    Sorry …… very off thread.I was thinking this was Judi’s Our Patch thread.
