Our weather is behaving a lot like a yoyo at the moment. Today it got to 36. The forecast high for Thursday is 17. I’m struggling to acclimatise and the plants seem to be having much the same problem.
The silver beet doesn’t seem to know what to do – some of the plants are bolting but others seem to be resisting the urge and continuing to produce big beautiful leaves. Perfect for silver beet and feta quiche.
The ever dependable rocket keeps going regardless and the lettuce, although it wilts a bit on warmer days is back to its old self in the evenings.
Greens aside my only harvests this week were few, small, perfectly blue and very very exciting. I had my first blueberries. I ate the first 3 without alerting my kids to their presence but guilt got the better of me so they ate the next 2. All were pronounced delicious but none have yet to survive long enough to be photographed. Perhaps this week….
In the meantime head over to Daphne’s where you will find harvests big, small and in between.
