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 and how I grow, 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. You can also visit my little spin-off blog called From Plot to Plate where in 2015 my partner and I will give recipes for all the food we cook from the allotment. See the links below.

What’s on the plot right now?

This was pretty much my April. Along with lots more sowing in the potting shed, and generally shuffling plants around. Also managed a couple of hours weeding and digging the plot today before rain stopped play. #allotment #allotmentjournal #illustratedjournal #diary #allotmentaction #vegetablegarden #growyourownfood Just got to magic these into crumble slices now. #rhubarb #growyourownfood #vegetablegarden #harvest #allotmentharvest #allotment My allotment neighbour showed up with his petrol mower to mow the path just in time. Saved me a job with my pathetic battery strimmer, and I got a mulch for the lettuces too. This will help to suppress the weeds, keep in warmth and moisture, and add nitrogen as it rots down. Perfect! 😊 #mulch #grassclippings #growinglettuce #allotmentgarden #vegetablegarden #growyourownfood Just about to get these fellas settled into their new home. Lettuce and pak choi. Thank god the weather has warmed back up again. It felt like mid winter for a while there. Yep, sometimes it snows in April. 🌨 #snow #Spring #weathervideo #slowmosnow #ripprince #beans are up and ready to go🌱#seedlings #allotment #growyourownveg #growingbeans
