Another week, another harvest. But this wasn’t just any week, this was the week Victoria tried to roast itself and in the process beat just about all heat wave records. And then a blessed cool change swept over us leaving behind gentle breezes and mild temperatures and we all realised we’d made it through, though nerves were quite frayed after all those days inside with kids.
That said you can understand why most of my harvests were done early morning or late evening and in something of a hurry. There was no dilly-dallying around in the patch, it was all about the mission, get that zucchini and get the hell out of there.
1 decent sized zucchini (hurray!)
A handful of beans (I lost most of my bean plants to the heat, my only loss, but still there goes my harvest)
Lots and lots and lots of rocket in preparation for the plants inevitably going to flower in the heat… which they did.
Lots of lettuce too…. some did get damaged in the heat but most has fared remarkably well.
Strawberries, straight from plant to mouth.
This week’s forcast is so much more pleasant that I think there will be lots of garden time. As always head over to Daphne’s for more harvesting and if you’re yet to check out The New Good Life of Facebook you can do that too.
