Well, my posts are becoming few and far between, a response to a busy life, but also not a lot happening in either kitchen or garden. Having said that the Autumn sunshine was just too enticing today so I took a break from reading journal articles (my head is swimming with them!) and finally cleared out the last of the summer crops. Can you believe it’s taken me this long!
In the process I picked a bowl full of wild sweetie and lemon drop tomatoes… Officially the last tomatoes for the year!
And two zucchinis, also the last for the year.
Now my harvest will pretty much be limited to silverbeet, rocket, kale and hopefully some peas, snow peas, broccoli, cauliflower (though I’m not sure that my seedlings survived) and cabbage. I’ll pop some broadbean seeds in tomorrow if the sun stays around. And I have planted a lot of garlic but that will be months away from being picked.
Once again this is hosted by Daphne, so check out her blog and others’ harvests here.
Update: my May 500 challenge has so far been going well. I have found 363 items of baby clothes to get rid of either to friends, family or to the op shop. I’m in the process of getting it all washed and sorted ready to go, but have already offloaded several large bags full of items. I have also found 107 of household items including books, CDs, DVDs some adult clothes and other bits and pieces to get rid of. These are currently mostly in the spare room waiting to be delivered to the appropriate place… it’s getting pretty crowded in there.
