Harvest Monday...

29 April, 2013

It's been a while since I last joined Daphne and co. as they rightfully show off their harvests from around the globe.

Here is what's been good in my garden this week:


Some of the summer crops are slow, but still coming along, including eggplant (variety Prosperosa), baby capsicums (Mini Yellow Bell), zucchini (Costata), beans (mix of Purple King and various green ones from saved seed I no longer remember the variety of), beetroot (ditto forgotten/mixed variety), strawberries and melons (large Lambkin's Hybrid, and small Tigger.)

The artichoke is a bit of an anomaly, as only one plant has been producing, but I'm not complaining.

The winter crops are coming along, but only crop-worthy so far are the kales (Tuscan and Green) and the self-sown (aka 'volunteer') peas (Dutch Purple Podded.) Also fruiting are autumn flowering raspberries (these are Heritage), though these are tiny, tiny fruits. These ones are grown along the house wall and are just under the eaves, so I think the lack of water is limiting fruit size, as others  more exposed are producing larger fruit. However those got eaten as I was wondering around the yard and didn't make it into the photo.

Make sure you check out what others are harvesting back at Daphne's.

  1. Louise - I'm so sorry. Somehow I deleted your comment by accident. I didn't mean to!!! I didn't even get a chance to read it... :(

    1. Cheers! It does feel like a strange mix of summer and winter crops, but delicious nevertheless.

  3. Well, that all looks very yum, from a time of year when we are all between crops. I have all red food this week - apples, red chard, and the last green tomatoes, slowly ripening on the laundry bench.

    1. I wish my apples were cropping! The few apples I had that set fruit all got eaten. Not happy!
