Yay, first decent fruit from my trees. I have to say I have been watering and caring for this tango mandarin for many years and only now I can say it is producing edible fruit and quite a few for a small tree.
The Meyer lemon tree I have only had for a year. So impressed I get one big fat juicy lemon.
Hope I have many more happy citrus years to come.
I have probably had a dozen little strawberry sized pineapple guavas this year which I am most impressed with as I wasn’t expecting anything. The pulpy center has a very fragrant purfumey taste which my hubby described as soapy but to me, they taste like mixed, tropical, miscellaneous fruit flavour 🙂
Started my Autumn clean up today and checked up on my little lemons which seem to have been growing for a whole year. The peel felt soft, like old lemons so I decided it was time to harvest.
Look at these cuties!
My tree is still pretty small and unhealthy looking but at least I got three little lemons.
I was pleased to see this when I cut one open.
Lots of juicy flesh!
I decided to make a butter lemon drizzle by heating lemon juice, butter and sugar. Tasted so delightful on waffles!
Homegrown meals are the best!
Although these eggplants are pretty small, they weren’t apparently getting any bigger and I have made the mistake of waiting too long before until they were dry, seedy and not good too eat.
I only had to add chicken to these ingredients to complete the dish and served with it with quinoa. Yum!
Hopefully I will get many more eggplants this season!
I love picking a few ripe peaches everyday before work/school. Uploading pix as a record of how much I get. I guess I can count them… Or post pics of every harvest 🙂
My container asparagus is doing really well. If I remember correctly, they are only two year old crowns although when I bought them, they came in a six pack of tiny ferns. I assume they were grown from seed…
I haven’t done anything special to them at all, add about an inch of fresh soil and some organic fertilizer once in a while.
There are a real mix of different sized spears. This one by far is the biggest one!
