Green tomatoes

green toms

My efforts to save the tomatoes were too little, too late. The blight had spread to the rest of the crop very quickly despite my spraying them, so the whole lot has been pulled out. So depressing! I do at least have a bag full of green tomatoes (some of which are ripening okay in the sun) but the rest will go into making green tomato chutney. Never made it or tasted it before, but I’ll give it a go.

There are a few quite varied recipes on the internet, I quite like the sound of this one on My Tiny Plot. However, as you can see, I have over 4lb of toms, which is the amount needed in this Keith Floyd recipe, so maybe I’ll do a cross between the two.

Welcome to my allotment!

This Blessed Plot is a diary of the events, be it mishaps, successes or failures, of organically growing fruit and vegetables on an allotment in Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK. There are posts about what I grow, what I cook, how I combat pests and diseases, and how I store and preserve my harvests, along with as many photos as possible. I hope you find some help or inspiration in these pages.

What’s on the plot right now?

Leeks
Carrots
Parsnips
Broad beans
Dwarf french beans
Green manure (mustard)
Garlic
Over wintering onions

Been going a bit butternutty with my squashes lately. Made a roasted squash and garlic pasta sauce last week, a creamy squash, potato and leek gratin at the weekend. A lamb and squash curry on Monday night, roasted squash and carrot soup, and now squash and almond muffins. Is there a more versatile vegetable? #butternut #baking #growyourown Homemade leek and potato soup. Perfect thing on a cloudy autumn day. #soup #comfort #autumm Bucket o' squash. #allotment #growyourown #butternut #autumn The plot in mid October #allotmentlife #allotment
