Last weekend's harvest was beans and squash. There were so many beans on the five little plants they were weighed down. We had beans and squash with dinner for three nights and we gave away quite a few squash.
I leave for work at 7am and don't get home until 6pm at the earliest (depending on traffic) so apart from a quick water one or two mornings during the week, the vegies have to fend for themselves Monday to Friday. Any that need more attention than that just don't survive. Most seem to manage quite well though, probably because over time I've learnt what's likely to do well and tend to stick with my favourites.
The rocket is powering on. It always seems to do OK with very little care. I love rocket in a salad.
and the next crop of lettuce are on their way as well.
I'm keeping an eye on the broccholi but nothing to harvest there yet.
The spring onions are coming on. Won't be too long before I can start using them.
As always there are some successes and some failures. Generally I like to think of the failures as a learning experience. I realised too late that the row of carrots I planted between the zucchini and the tatsoi were not destined for greatness - too crowded. I've sown another row elsewhere (with a bit more room to grow) so fingers crossed they do better.
These seedlings are a bit slow but seem healthy enough. They were something new I tried this year. Not sure what they are - I think either red cabbage or kale. Maybe someone can tell me or I'll just wait and see.
The asparagus (also new this year) is growing nicely. It won't be ready to harvest for long time yet but it looks healthy enough. That's oregano in the front corner. It seems to thrive on neglect and just keeps spreading.
It would be nice to be able to spend more time in the garden. That may happen one day, but until then I'm grateful that there are so many vegies that don't seem need a lot of TLC.
