Planting The Raspberry Bed | 50 Days of Harvest, Day 23

Day 23 of my 50 Days of Harvest and the total harvested, prepared and stored is growing nicely. I started out hoping to harvest 250lbs in 50 days and after a week I increased it to 500lbs in 50 days. The total is now edging towards the 500lbs and I'm not quite halfway through the 50 days, so over the next week I will decide whether to increase the target again or not.



I made the first of our homegrown raspberry jam today, so we had scones and cream to go with the jam. It's a little taste of what we have to come in future years - and I'm really looking forward to it!

No Dig Potatoes - The Final Result

After months of waiting I have finally lifted the entire crop of potatoes so that I can judge whether using weed suppressing membrane and a no dig method is a good idea in our annual vegetable garden.
