Most Things Great... are small

This Turks Turban is currently about the size of a football

We have realised this year, that big is not necessarily best. Whilst we are feeling rather proud of our swelling squash:

l-r: Choggio di Marni; Acorn; Turks Turban
and the runner beans taste just as good at any size:

we have found that the cucumbers are at their most succulent picked small, that the courgette are at their best picked at about the size of Billy's finger (not Harriet's) and that the carrots are sweetest as babies.

Purple Haze carrots - these are not quite as nice as Atlas carrots
