Harvest Monday...

Happy Harvest Monday!

I don't usually get around to posting for the institution that is Harvest Monday, care of Daphne of Daphne's Dandelions. But today I had an ADO from work and thus was at home and able to take pretty pictures of whats been good in the garden this week.


There's plenty of rhubarb (this lot is for some work friends who assist me with getting rid of the massive amount of rhubarb my four plants seem to produce), some tiny orange carrots which are just the right size for snacking, some purple carrots (all of mine seem to fork like crazy), leafy greens including lettuce (Baby Cos), Kale (Green Curly) and perpetual spinach, some tiny broccoli heads from the plants that get very little sun, a cauli (Mini White), some peas (Dutch Purple Podded) and a few beetroots (from a multicoloured pack so I don't know the individual varieties).

Head on over to Daphne's to see amazing harvests from across the globe.

    1. Yes, I am very thankful to them for taking it off my hands! Most of the veg here went into a quiche, and it was delish!

  3. Wow, doing well for mid-winter. I keep going out and clipping the tops off all the little peas sprouting out of my pea-straw! So yummy, and look so expensive garnishing our salads and beef stew on mash!

    1. Cheers! That is such a great idea! I used to hate pea straw for that reason, but never cropped them. Wasted opportunity...

  4. What a colorful harvest. My winter harvests always seem to be green green green. Purple carrots seem more prone to fork than other color carrots in my garden as well.

    1. Cheers! At least I'm not the only ones with forking purple carrots. I keep seeing them at markets all lovely and straight and felt bad. I wonder what their secret is...
