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?

Dwarf beans
Brussel Sprouts
Savoy Cabbages
Purple sprouting broccoli
Maincrop onions

I finally got around to plaiting my garlic last night. Made 4 plaits and filled a basket with hardneck and elephant garlic. That should keep the vampires away for a little while anyway! #garlic #garlicplait #allotment #growyourown #harvest We braved pouring rain to rescue these from the plot last night. I'm going to need more courgette recipes! #courgettes #zucchini #glut #allotment I've just posted a recipe for this cake. It's courgette, coconut and lime. Light, moist and flavoursome, and a great way to use up those courgettes! There's a link on the right of my allotment blog (From Plot to Plate). #cakerecipe #courgette She is quite insistent on holding on to both pieces of chew at once, just in case someone tries to take one. Looks like she's grown weird fangs! Daft dog. #cockerspaniel #instadog #daft #ilovemydog
