We are back, after an absence of 3 weeks, with a Harvest Monday (on Tuesday here in Australia). Quite simply, apart from the last of the leeks in Week 9, we haven’t had anything to harvest except herbs. Instead, we have been busily preparing the soil and planting for the next season.
I forgot to take a photo of the leeks, but they can be seen here just before they were eaten. I caramalised them using a favourite recipe from Taste.com.
This week we harvested our jarradale pumpkin – it was from a batch of seeds we were told were Kent. From our two plants we produced two Queensland Blue and this beauty.
Despite the size – circumference of 82 centimetres – it only weighs 4.7 kilograms. Still, it will make some wonderful soups in the colder weather.
Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne on her blog Daphne’s Dandelions, have a look and see what other garden bloggers have been harvesting this past week.
