Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire No. 30: Keep har­vest­ing

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

After the long weeks of wait­ing, sud­denly, it’s all hands to the pump. The har­vest has be­gun and we are again re­minded of the an­nual cy­cle of glut and short­age. Beans of all sorts be­come su­per-abun­dant from now on and must be picked over ev­ery day if we are to en­joy them at their best. Cour­gettes turn into mar­rows in the twin­kling of an eye and you can­not give them to your neigh­bour, who has a sup­ply. Let­tuces and other salad crops sown in short rows for suc­ces­sion now come into their own. How lovely to be spoilt for choice.
