Lettuce and strawberries galore, plus magenta orach. Pak choi big enough to be eaten now.

All my annual and perennial herbs - tons of coriander and dill self seeded everywhere.

But then we are still eating tons of last year's food like garlic and spuds and walnuts and basil, not to mention loads of fruit and veg in the freezer. So we don't go short and there's always something home grown in our meals. :iconbiggrin:

Going to take the first of the new potatoes that I have grown in bags in the polytunnel this weekend. At the moment we are getting herbs - various, mixed salad leaves, pak choi, radish, welsh onions and rhubarb.

Peas, broccoli (calabrese), lettuce, salad leaves, japanese onions, last take of asparagus before starting on artichoke. Broad beans almost ready to start eating, beetroot also ready very soon. Not from the allotment, but nicked from the roadside, acacia blossom cooked as fritters/tempura. All this and they call it the hungry gap

Thanks to my dog destroying my garden when we first got her - turnip greens (which I adore) and herbs are the only things. Shouldn't be long til my first tatties though :flower:

Cherries - wow - guess you have those early red ones but even they are normally ripe a bit later in May - but then of course everything is earlier this year due to all the warmth. Happy eating (and pip spitting :mrgreen: ). :cheers:

Started digging our outdoor potatoes today, nice size and just about enough for the two of us on one root.
They are Maris Bard this year (cos I picked up the wrong bag in the garden centre, should have been Home Guard that I normally have).
I should really have started them last week as there have been loads in the shops from the farmers all around me.

Other than that, lots of peas, lots of strawberries, gooseberries, rhubarb, lettuce, tomatoes, spring onions, carrots, tender stem broccoli, courgette (singular) and French beans.

I dug my first spuds yesterday - after only 65 days and they are ready :cheers: .

This year is bizarre, I have never had my early strawbs (Gariguette), raspberries and blackcurrants all ripe at the same time. :shock: Oh and my July cherries are ripening and some edible already. Really odd. Shame I don't like summer pudding though!

Had first peas and have been eating mange tout in salad for a week now. I think I still prefer raw peas to cooked ones though I will admit that the little petit pois (I managed to pick at right stage this year) cooked are a lot better than the big ones!!

Anyway we managed 11.5 months of being self sufficient in potatoes :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: and have only eaten 2 bought ones (will try to use up those ones for roasting or baking).
