Harvesting gold

This is today's harvest from the garden - this is probably the last of the runner beans, but this is just the first of the baby carrots. I am very excited about these as they are the first variety I have ever managed to grow successfully, and I think it is because they are small and round, instead of being long and thin! They are a little small and could have done with a little longer growing but I was impatient to see what they were like, so I have pulled some, and left a lot to grow for a little longer. I think that these will be wonderful for lunch with some salad of cress, apple and tomatoes, and perhaps some lettuce if we have any ready. Raw will be the best way to eat them, as they will be fresh and sweet, I hope!
