I’m feeling a bit summery today, the weather has warmed up in past week or two and the crops are looking a bit more summer like. All except for the last of the broad beans that is. I have really enjoyed having broad beans this year. I wish I’d planted more but then there’s always next year. This lot went into a side dish for dinner this evening.
The rest of my harvests were more summery though. I harvested the first of my zucchinis, and if the little ones are anything to go by there are many more to come. This one went onto the bbq to served with some lime and turmeric marinated barramundi (an Australian fish).
Another first of the season were some pickling cucumbers. I have to admit this is the first time I’ve grown specific pickling cucumbers. I’m not entirely sure whether I’ve harvested these too early or too late, but I think the only thing to do is pickle them and find out.
As usual I have to include at least one herb picture. At the moment I am harvesting thyme, oregano, tarragon, dill, the occasional basil leaf and the mint you see pictured here along with some rocket. I’m still harvesting heaps of lettuce too but it seems to have escaped the camera lens this week.
Both the mint and the rocket went into a rice salad.
My least impressive harvest of this week must surely be the first of the softneck garlic. Completely underwhelming. Not sure what I need to change for next year but this lot really isn’t great is it?
And that brings to a close this weeks harvests. For more hop across to Daphne’s Dandelions.
