Snapshot sort of Sunday

I finally got all my pictures on to one computer — having a bit of computer dramas here and having to reformat!

I thought I’d show some of the small end harvest I had at the end of this summer and this autumn.

Some of the pictures were taken on my phone, so apologies for poor quality!

My purple dragon carrots were awesome.  I will be growing these again.

Still orange on the inside! :)

A couple of the pear tomatoes that were in my tomato mix

Harvested scarlet runner beans and green beans to dry out

Crystal apple cucumber (this one was pretty bitter and it was early on in the season.  The last couple I harvested were really nice, but the skin is a bit thick and they have so many seeds.  Probably won’t grow them again.

The raised garden bed next to the fence still has plenty of spring onions left in it — I try to use them as much as I can when cooking, but there’s still a lot! I’ll have to give some away to neighbors this week.  I’ve decided to let these marigolds go on their own for a bit so I can save some seed heads to take with us when we move.

Yep, we are moving.  To Wellington!  More on that in a future post.

How are your gardens looking?

    Purple Dragon carrots – fabulous. I have never seen such beautiful carrots. Your produce looks wonderful. You obviously have a very very green thumb. Virginia
