June's Harvest

Summer is finally here and our soft fruit are piling in! There are plenty of trays now freezing for consumption later in the summer. Shades of pink also seem to be the colour of the month!

Cherries! The very first harvest from our cherry tree - 'summer sun'

Our mystery berry. Longer than a raspberry and much darker. Growing on a thornless vine too.

The first of the raspberries.

It''s Wimbledon so strawberries are obligatory.

Broad beans. Not pink I hear you say...

Pink!

Not as pink as the packet but then I don't like them old and tough.

  1. Lots of lovely harvests! Your mystery berry may be a Loganberry, I have one & that seems thornless.

    1. We'd suspected loganberry, the fruits certainly seem right, but (very limited) research suggested that they normally were thorny. If yours are thornless though that might answer our question :)

  2. I was going to say loganberry too! Or they look quite like our boysonberry though they go much darker later on. I was famous in our family for hating broad beans, then a few years ago I ate some fresh ones that had just been picked and it was a revelation. I love them now! I clearly just didn't like supermarket beans that were picked at full maturity and been hanging around for days.

    1. I'm completely with you on not liking broad beans - I only eat them young and fresh as well :)

  3. Yes, I too think it's a loganberry, they have a lovely delicate flavour don't they.
    What a fab harvest, I do love the broad beans and cherries!xxx

    1. Thanks. All the soft fruit seems like a complete bonus to us as, cherries aside, it was already in the garden and takes very little tending to :)

    1. I'm glad you found and enjoyed some cherries. We've been munching through ours each day and we're not tired of them yet!
