Handy Harvesting Guide | Vegetables
Nothing tastes better than home-grown vegetables: from vege patch to plate
Royal Burgundy, Blue Lake (Bush), Provider (Bush Bean), Snake Beans, Aquadulce (Broad), Egyptian (Broad), Climbing/Runner Beans
We have many different varieties and plant them in mid-Spring to early Summer. Pick your beans when they reach 12-14cm in length. Regular picking encourages more new beans to grow.
They prefer cooler temperatures and are best planted in Autumn. They should be picked when you can only just feel the beans inside them. If they are left to get too big they can become tough and lose their sweetness.
Belstar, Di Ciccio Broccoli is the king of our Winter crop.
We plant broccoli in Autumn and do not stagger the growth as broccoli can be preserved. It is good to remove the sprouting broccoli shoots for the first few weeks as this encourages more growth giving you thicker heads come harvest.
Bulls Blood, Early Wonder
We grow beetroot all year round in your garden. You can usually tell when your beets are ready by the roots protruding above the soil. The best beets are about the same size as a tennis ball.
Red Dutch, Savoy, Tatsoi, Wong Bok
Cabbage is another of our winter favourites. Harvest the heads when you think they are big enough. They should be at least 15cm wide before you cut them.
