In the next few days I  should be able to pick my first cucumbers of the season.
What have you got that's ready? My tomatoes are way off.

Rhubarb here too
I made both rhubarb and ginger, and rhubarb and strawberry, jams, and turned the rest into crumbles, etc., The plants are throwing out more thick stems, so there's more to come.

I also grow things like pignuts in pots, and I've been munching some of them too. The usual selection of herbage as well.

I think the next things to come ripe are going to be the gooseberries; it looks like a really good crop this year. The blackcurrants are dripping with green berres and they're filling out fast, so I'm hopeful there.

I picked these from the Poly this morning. Maybe not financially but it makes all the hard work worth it.

Picking lettuce and salad greens, radish, mangetout, spinach, pak choi and 'Kabuki' broccoli. First courgette and broad beans today.

There's a 'greyhound' cabbage that also looks ready.

I've got one or two cherry tomatoes colouring up but by the looks of things, I'm not going to get a particularly large crop.
