Harvest Monday...

08 December, 2014

Hiya y'all. Sorry for the break in blogging but I was horrendously unwell with severe food poisoning. Not fun. But now I'm pretty much recovered and happy to be getting excited about gardening and food, rather than just feeling extremely nauseous at the mere thought of eating anything.

Which brings me to current garden harvests, courtesy of Daphne at Daphne's Dandelions.


Current veg harvests consist of the last of the broccoli (only one plant is still forming decent mini-heads, and I'm amazed it hasn't yet succumbed to aphids. White fly yes, but aphids no.), a few odd lettuce leaves, the first of the capsicums (from the greenhouse) and a few very early (probably too early but I got too excited on seeing them and couldn't not pick them) cucumbers. Not pictured are the shallots and potato onions, which are the only decent sized onions in the garden.

On the fruit front the raspberries are going great guns, and the first of the (slightly bird pecked) cherries are here.

Don't forget to check out other international harvests at Daphne's.

  2. Agree with Daphne - lovely berries! So are your potato onions the same as here (they multiply like shallots and store for a very long time?) I have some in the ground to overwinter - I wasn't able to import them from the US due to border restrictions, so had to grow them from seed. As seeds do not grow true to type, I ended up with a variety of colours/sizes.

    And I'm glad you are feeling better.

    1. Thanks Margaret! I think they must be the same, as they are a bunching onion similar to shallots. I have never stored them per se, but I just leave some in the ground each year then pull them up, separate them and replant in early winter. So I never actually pull them up for storage. Yay for mild winters.

  3. Mmm, berries and cherries, I do miss the summer fruits. So glad to hear you're feeling better, nausea like that is so horrible.

    1. Cheers e! Yes,the bird pecks were entirely my fault for not netting the tree early enough. Note to self for next year!
