Another week of erratic weather, another week of spasmodic plant growth, another week of harvests.
I have 3 blueberry plants which I bought about 18 months ago. They are growing in pots. Two are fruiting at the moment. Both are evergreen varieties, one of them is a Nelly Kelly, the other is unknown as I lost the label. Any fruit they bore last year was taken by the birds but this year the birds seem to be leaving them alone (touchwood). Whilst the crop isn’t large it is nice to be able to pick a few each time I go out to water.
Other than the blueberries my crops this week are all veggies.
The occasional warmer day is a good excuse to start eating a lot more salad.
A forage around the potato bed yielded these:
A few remaining overlooked broad beans:
I also harvested a couple of womboks this week. Two of which had some usable leaves but the third was so infested with caterpillars that it has to go to the chooks.
Finally a couple of perennial favourites. I don’t think there is a week that goes by when I don’t harvest spring onions and silver beet at least once (if not more often). This week was no exception.
One day soon I hope I will start getting some more summery crops but in the meantime I will have to content myself with looking at other people’s over at Daphne’s.
