Veggie Delight

The cauliflower, beans and broccoli are from the plot I'm helping my flatmate maintain. The spring onions and carrots are from my balcony pots. The purple carrot is orange in the middle and looks amazing in cross section which I'll take a picture of when they're up to a regular size.

My carrot tops have been all lush and green for a while and so every few days I've been yanking one up only to be left with dissapointment because there was virtually nothing growing underneath. I got so concerned I asked my allotment guru about it but and was told that if there was green, the carrots would come. I was expecting the same today but instead I got these thinnings and while small are perfectly useable and tasted great with the other veg.

The beans are amazing in terms of harvest. We can't seem to pick them fast enough and both myself and my flatmate have given them to friends/colleagues.

Both the cauliflower and broccoli we were growing started out suffering from caterpillars which is pretty gross at first but I'm sort of getting used to that aspect of home grown veg. The ones in this picture didn't have any crawlies, bonus.
