Harvest Monday...

13 April, 2015

Yet again it is Monday, which in my world means Harvest Monday, that veg gardeners show off courtesy of Daphne at Daphne's Dandelions.

Today's harvest is really a mix of the summer and autumn produce.


End of summer harvests of capsicums, eggplants, zucchini and melons makes me feel summer is still hanging on, even if that is only by it's fingernails.

Late sown beans and the oh-so-fast to produce radishes feel a little like a new season is upon us.

Autumn harvests of pears and autumn raspberries reinforce the feel of the change of seasons.

I hope your harvests are prolific wherever you are. Don't forget to check out Daphne's and the other Harvest Monday harvests.

  1. What a wonderful harvest basket. And those pears - I keep hoping my pears produce some year. Who knows when though. Yours look great.

    1. Cheers! I hope your pears produce this year too. A homegrown pear is a lovely thing. Only two of my nine pears have fruited so far, all planted in 2009. I hope more join in next year.

  2. What a wonderful harvest! Your basket looks like a still life painting. How will you preserve your capsicums?

    1. Cheers! Most of my capsicums get eaten raw, but I've made lots into salsa too. I might also dry some chillies, and make sweet chilli sauce if the chilli plants keep cropping.
