Harvest Monday...

02 May, 2016

Yay for Harvest Monday, that international celebration of home veg harvests.

Cheers to Dave for hosting Harvest Monday.

I had hoped to post monthly, but this was as close as I got to an April typical harvest pic. Better late than never.


Current veg harvests include: the last of the summer eggplant, tomatoes, beans and capsicums. The only tomatoes still going are the self sown ones, which is a bonus. This will be the last of the beans, as there are no more flowers coming along, but I think the eggplant and tomato harvest will go another few weeks.

Autumn crops are slowly taking over, with carrots and leeks being the main pic over this weekend. There are a few big beetroots left, with plenty more small ones coming along.

Not pictured is lettuce, rocket, silverbeet, bok choy and amaranth.

On the fruit front the apples are peaking. This one is a Red Cleopatra but I've also got Woodbridge Winter Pippin ready to crop, and the Sundowner and Pink Lady apples are not far away. The autumn raspberries are a joy, and the lemons are prolific.

Don't forget to go and check out other harvests.

  1. It's so nice seeing your leeks and carrots mixed in with summer produce. It looks like you're still getting tons of eggplants.

    1. Yes, the eggplants are going nuts at the moment, and I'm very glad to see leeks and carrots as soup season hits :)

  2. Looks like a great mix of goodies there in the harvest basket! And all those apples sound yummy too. That's one thing I miss about my old place, where I had quite a few mature apple trees.

    1. Cheers! I would had to have to leave a mature tree behind, as there is nothing better than a tree laden with fruit.

  3. Yum! Curious to know when you planted those leeks? I'm always so caught up in the summer crop abundance that by autumn my garden is very bare.

    1. It's hard to remember exactly but I think it was around June last year, so it's a long wait. But they tak up little space so I don't mind that much.
