We were away last week, playing in Phillip Island’s surf. I love boogie boarding and spent an enjoyable week in the waves (mostly in a wet suit as it hasn’t been particular warm here for the past week or so). Happily the garden thrived in my absence and has started producing new crops.
I arrived back to find a couple of oversized cucumbers (all Lebanese as that’s what I planted this year) and a couple of proper sized ones.
There were also the first of this season’s tomatoes. I’m not entirely sure what this variety is as its a volunteer but it bears a remarkable similarity to a variety called Principe Borghese that my parents grow so maybe….
There was also an abundance of beans:
I picked all the Gourmet Delight that were ready but decided to leave the climbers to develop into drying beans. It will be interesting to see which ones work best.
For more harvests head across to Daphne’s Dandelions where you should find delights from around the world.
