Harvest Monday...

24 January, 2016

It's been a while since I joined in a Harvest Monday.

I've really missed these, but am determined that this year I will post for Harvest Monday at least once a month. As the internet is my witness.

So, straight to it. This is pretty indicative of current garden harvests.


The cucumbers (varieties Mini White and Spacemaster) are prolific, as are the Anzac peaches. The beans (climbing Purple King) and the zucchini are providing reliable pickings. This is the first picking of Ziegler plums, and they are a little underripe but I just couldn't hold of any longer. It's been 10 months since I ate one and I was a little impatient. I pulled up these few onions and the carrot when cleaning out a bed for sowing more beans, so they are a bit unintended by no less welcome.

Not shown are the odd few tomatoes (they are very slow this year and I've only picked a few where usually by now I'd be drowning in them), lettuce leaves, eggplants, blackberries and capsicums.

Don't forget to check out other worldwide harvests.

  1. Oh! It's wonderful to see some summer harvests. All the summer veggies I've eaten lately have been canned, frozen, or dried. It will be a long time before I get to enjoy another fresh ripe tomato from my garden, I can't wait to see some of yours.

    1. Cheers! I kinda miss winter veg, broccoli and cabbages mostly, but then I get peaches, so I get over it pretty quick :)

  2. Hi Bek, I do love your harvest and the basket - so pretty and colourful and good to eat too. And I see you have a rainbow carrot there - lovely to et fresh. I didn't get round to harvesting my White sprouting broccoli this week, but will join in next week.

    1. Yes, a carrot I missed when harvesting that bed earlier. Hmmm, white sprouting broccoli sounds great.
