I have also harvested the Purple Sprouting Broccoli that I wrote about a couple of days ago. Apart from the fact that it is 3 months early, that's great too, since PSB has to count as one of my all-time favourite vegetables.
I cut the central flowering head of one of the "Rudolph" plants, and four of the biggest side-shoots. I have to admit though that this was not a prime specimen. Having developed too early it was a bit on the stringy side, and had a much stronger flavour than usual - Jane found it a bit overpowering.
Also still cropping are the Chillis. These little ones are "Serrano" (from a plant inside one of the mini-greenhouses), but the last of the enormous "Pinocchio's Nose" ones are ripening nicely too, in the garage.
I've picked the last of the Summer lettuce, along with some more of the "Catalogna" chicory. The Winter lettuces under my cloches are still far from ready. They are growing very slowly, which is not unexpected.
