More babies...

Peas and spinach (pictured) and teeny carrots and beetroot! :)

This evening I harvested my first salad leaves of the year - they were just thinnings really but there were plenty of them and they were yummy :)

And I've got baby broad beans in loo rolls - look!

Walnut failure!

Back in October I collected a basketful of walnuts. According to my research, in order to store them I had to remove all the flesh and then dry the nuts in their shells, after which they would keep for many months...

I've just cracked them open (with a hammer - my nutcracker was not powerful enough) and they're all completely dried out inside, with only the teensiest little nuts that wouldn't even feed a mouse :(
