In fact this weekend was devoted solely to picking stuff!
- A handful of strawberries but they had mostly been damaged by the recent downpours.
- 3 gorgeous lettuces and a handful of nutty roquette that we ate on Saturday night in a salad.
- Two handfuls of peas and mangetout, just enough to make a jardiniere for Sunday lunch.
- My first courgette! It was delicious.
Apart from the weeds, many things seem to be growing well, including the tomatoes, the potimarron, the onions (which have splendidly thick necks) and the parsnips. However one of my Qld Blue pumpkins seems to have died and so has one of the melons. I will try to plant some replacements this weekend, I don't think it is too late.
My broccoli seems to be taking off, there are at least 12 plants that have come up past the seedling stage. I will thin them out a bit later on. And the green beans we planted last weekend have sprouted quite well. It has rained and I think that if we get some more sun, a good growth spurt should happen.
