I have this theory about zucchini – the main reason they get big is indecision about how to cook them. You notice a few almost ready to pick then you start to wonder what you’ll cook. By the time you’ve decided – ie a couple of days later, they have started to get bulbous and unruly. Or perhaps its just me….
I harvested quite a few cherry tomatoes this week. They are Tiny Tim. They’re coming in fits and starts. A handful or two and then none ripe for a week.
Also pictured are mint and thyme. The thyme went into spaghetti sauce. The mint went into a beetroot salad. Unfortunately I forgot to photograph the beetroot.
I did manage to photograph some beans though:
The beans are Purple King, pictured here along with more Tiny Tim tomatoes, some lettuce and some more Kipfler potatoes. I think I’ve harvested most of the Kipflers from my bed which is annoying. They’ve cropped OK but I just didn’t plant nearly enough of them.
The final crop for this week was some more lettuce and the first Summer Dance cucumber. Thanks to Bek for the seed.
I’m not sure whether I will manage a Christmas Eve Monday Harvest post. If not Merry Christmas to all Monday Harvesters and in particular to our host Daphne. Head over to see who else is harvesting what this week.
