First harvest for 2014!

We harvested garlic, carrots, squash and spinach from the patch on 2/1, but forgot to take a photo!

Today we collected a bounty of zucchini and suyho cucumber from the backyard. Planning to use the zucchini for Ricotta and Zucchini pizzas plus dehydrate some for chips. Cucumbers will be used in salads.


Will post another retrospective, this time on the Happy Patch, soon.


About A Kailyard in Adelaide

A Kailyard in Adelaide! We are working hard to be domestically sustainable in the foothills of Adelaide. As we both work fulltime this is not an easy task, but we do our best growing much of our own produce in our yard and in our community garden plots. We reduce, recycle and reuse as much as possible and try hard to not consume mindlessly. We have 5000 l of rainwater, a 5 kw solar system, and use a green energy provider for all our excess needs.

  1. The Suyo Long are one of my favourite cucumber varieties these days too. We are eating cucumber pretty well every meal at the moment, often in a raita – just finely diced cucumber mixed with yoghurt with mint, garlic and salt blended into it. It goes with practically anything and i
    s a way to get through a lot of cucumber!

    I love the weird curly shapes the suyho makes, though they are hard to peel when the are so curly!
