More summer veggies

The bottom half of the plot sown at the end of May is now producing a lot more stuff.As long as there's a bit of sun the plants seem quite happy sitting between the lumps of wet clay.
Got caught in a downpour this evening going over the allotment to fill a colander with veggies for my tea so took the photos when I got home after the rain stopped.

Beetroot,two types of chard and dwarf beans and the last of the peas
Red chard "Fantasy" and Lincoln peas

Swiss chard "Lucullus"

Butter bean "Golden Glow"

Dwarf bean "Delinel"

Beetroot "Cylindra"
Have just discovered the delights of roasted beetroot ,cooked in olive oil until slightly caramelised and finished with a little balsamic vinegar. Eaten hot or as cold leftovers. Yum.

The smell of drying garlic is keeping the vampires away.Here's the crop that I dug up last week. I'm pleased with the results considering it got a late start and a move between the garden and allotment part way through.
