Harvest Monday – Week 5

Welcome to another Harvest Monday (Tuesday here in Aus). This week has been a busy one with both of us back at work full-time. Still managed to harvest quite a bit however. Our bantam corn is producing many delicious cobs.

The zucchini glut has continued.

I swapped a few for 2 kilos of nectarines which I sliced, added  sugar and lemon juice and froze in zip lock bags for future cooking adventures.

    Definitely envious of all that beautiful squash – it’s the one veg that I can’t seem to get right.

    I always love when you post. I love seeing summer during my very snowy winter. And what a haul of zucchini. Your one week of zucchini is about half of what I got for the whole year.

  3. I always love to read blogs from Australia! You guys get to harvest yummy summer produce while we are shivering through the winter. It helps. Beautiful harvests. 🙂

  4. That is a great summer harvest! A lot like mine minus the zucchini this year. I am a fellow blogger from Adelaide, love reading about other gardens in the same zone.
