Or your harvest will look like this:
This spring has been totally delightful so far. Cool, mild and raining non-stop. Nothing like last spring. The garden is so happy and I’ve just been sitting back and watching it grow.
Second spring in my vegie patch and another first: a fully formed cabbage.
I harvested my first ever asparagus out of the garden this past week. It was worth the wait.
Gardening has really changed my perception of the seasons.
I noticed the first flowers on my broad beans over the past few days. Which means it’s time to get ready for the harvest.
We don’t seem to have had as much frost this year as last. It’s been raining a lot. But this morning we had what passes for a heavier frost in our backyard, so I thought I’d show you how the winter vegies I have growing cope.
Another winter and I’ve improved by four the number of things I can harvest out of the garden: lemons (a yield of ten fruits!), rhubarb, chervil and red mustard. I have some way to go before I conquer the winter harvest.
Well yes, it’s a vegetable. But it eats like fruit. Anyway, I was thrilled when after a long hot spring and summer, my rhubarb started showing signs of life in autumn.
The hot weather has passed, there leaves are turning, and there are mild sunny days with cool breezes. So I’ve come out of my summer hibernation to get the garden ready for winter.
