With the weather fluctuating between 43° (109°) and 21° (70) over the past week it has been an interesting time in the garden. On the hottest day we had tents fashioned from old sheets up to protect everything from burning.
This was followed by humid, cloudy and very wet days!
This means that some of the tomatoes have split due to over watering but other plants, like the mints, got a well needed refresh. As did the water tanks.
Zucchinis have continued to flourish. We missed one whopper, it weighed in at 1270 grams!
All up we had 2471 grams of green zucchini and 167 of yellow.
168 g Lebanese cucumber.
We picked the first of our curly lettuce – 100 grams.
567 g of leeks.
We also harvested 387 grams of tomatoes, 464 g of cherry tomatoes, a brown capsicum at 17 g, 323 g of spinach, 1 button squash 21 g and 3 bunches of grapes at 676 grams.
