I know it's too early to pick most of my crops but I'm going to need some help. I've not done any veg gardening before and I don't really know how to know when things are ready. oldbloke says he's pretty confident he'll know when the peas are ready to pick because his dad used to grow them, but otherwise I'm kind of playing it all by ear. Well, no, tomatoes I understand!
So, are there any books or websites out there that'll show me - show being the operative word - what things look like when they're ready to pick?
Everything in the garden's looking pretty good, although most of my brassicas appear to have succumbed to the slugs. I'm very excited about the idea of harvesting, but don't want to pick too early or wait too late!
