the harvest

well this is the rest of our veg from our little veg patch this year.

we,ve had to pick our toms, they didnt look like ripening after all the strong winds we've had here the plants got blown over 3 or 4 times despite tying up, so decided to pick them let them ripen indoors then make into pasta sauce.
our leeks again needed picking as some were starting to go to seed, ive eneded up with 5 chopped bags and 2 sliced bags ready for soups and stews in the winter months.
and our carrots, have already had loads of pickings for dinners but decided to get the rest up ready for the freezer. i have 8 bags either for stews or dinners and 2 bags sliced for soups.
all in all quite happy with these, have spent the last 3 1/2 hours preparing them all.
