Dec 2017. Volunteers from compost and asparagus one month growth

21 Dec

So tall! Over a foot tall! Unfortunately I do not know how old these crowns are. I am going to assume one year crowns. Impulse buy 🙂

I think I have some kind of squash! First time used some compost. I have a closed bin which possibly has zucchini seeds from the old zucchini I grew earlier this year or spaghetti squash seeds. I hardly buy any squash. So excited to see what we are getting!

Also I see a couple of tomatoes. We had a random volunteer that grew and grew and grew. It was a pear yellow cherry tomato and was very productive so these are likely from that.

Pineapple guava shedding leaves but still a couple of fruit left

6 Nov

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 🙂

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 🙂

Harvest Monday

7 May

Pulled up almost all my carrots. They’re getting stringy roots off the main carrot so probably means its done growing. something quite satisfying a out pulling up carrots, you never know how big it will be and what shape!

The yellows and oranges are easy to grow. The reds are tougher. Although all my seeds are a couple of years old.

So colourful!

And I had to harvest all my mustard greens as they were beginning to flower. So many leaves! I washed and chopped them up and stirfried them with olive oil, garlic and salt. Simple. Added a bit oyster sauce for extra flavour.

These taste SO good. They’re bigger and tastier than the Tropic Prince peaches this year. Last year was the reverse. Yum!
