Old Favourites in the Garden

Our biggest crops in the garden are zucchinis, carrots, leeks and cabbages. The carrots have done really well this year which is encouraging as 3/4 of last years went rotten for some unknown reason. We have over 1000 leeks planted which we use all winter. They don’t seem to mind the frosts at all. Zucchinis have overwhelmed us with fruit this year. We have some in the freezer for winter and my dear mother has made some into Zucchini and Cucumber Chutney using cucumbers from our greenhouse.
