Welcome to another Harvest Monday (Tuesday here in Aus).
Not a lot to report this week. We have been busy planting and organising the garden as you can see in this previous blog post.
This week we harvested the last of the chillis from our Thai and Jalepeno plants.
Apparently, chilli plants can be kept dormant over winter to renew in the spring but ours have always died. Anyone know the secret?
I froze them all in one snap lock bag to be taken out and used when needed.
We harvested the first of the kale this week which was exciting. Despite being under nets they still attracted aphids which was disappointing. Luckily, not in huge numbers so they were easy to clean off.
The spinach and silverbeet keep producing and we keep eating!
Week 19: spinach 262 g, silverbeet 176 g, chilli 73 g, kale 51 g.
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.
