Wow! What sort of bananas are they Silent? I should think they are hard to store? Can you pick them a few at a time from the bottom of the bunch while it’s still on the tree?January 29, 2012 at 1:17 pm #515370

I think they are lady fingers and they generally ripen within a few days of each other. :dry: I’ll just have to eat lots of banana muffins fro a while I think.January 29, 2012 at 1:56 pm #515373mumof6Member
well I just made 6 lites of blackberry jam fro the berries we picked today plus have 2 kg in the fridge for a relly who wants to make some will drop them off tomorrow.
Silent could you dry some of your banannas into bananna chips? or is it to wet there at the moment.January 30, 2012 at 6:00 am #515374crystalMember
We picked 2 peas, 2 strawberries and a tomato!January 30, 2012 at 6:06 am #515375kerriebMember
Tomatoes, a few mini peppers, zuchinnis (the long climbing ones), eggs, lettuce, beans. Nothing terribly exciting. Looking longingly at the apples none quite ready yet.January 30, 2012 at 7:15 am #515376

If you had a dehydrator you could make millions of banana chips!! My friend used to skin, wrap in gladwrap and freeze them whole, and the kids, hers and mine, ate them like ice blocks.
Milk/banana smoothies? Banana bread?January 30, 2012 at 8:11 am #515377karyn26Member
Picking zucchinis before they get too big,looking at the tomatoes wishing they’d hurry up.March 16, 2012 at 7:28 pm #515378lisanneMember

It is the beginning of the cool (cooler) growing season for me so my harvest is the tropical vegetables etc I grow in the hot summer here:
Manioc root peeled, cooked and cut up for the freezer
Kangkong and pumpkin tips for a lunch stir fry with snake beans and new garlic shoots (elephant garlic coming up from last years bulbils)baby bottle gourds and Tromboncino squash
2 watermelons – all I have had for the season due to problems with cucumber fly – next year I will cover them with netting bags after pollination
Chinese artichokes the first for the year
Okra, cherry tomatoes, green capsicum and eggplant – have had no luck with real tomatoes due to the unprecedented number of pests which have followed on from the last 2 years of heavy rainfall
Strawberries and spring onions from my experimental lucerne bale garden in the shade
30 Dragon Fruit I will be drying over night – big harvest with 36 on one plant this year – first time they have been anything but a treat
White Indian guavas and red and yellow passion fruit (just starting to fruit late in the season). Some acerola and small mulberries from a second season fruiting.
Lima beans about 3 kg of dried beans
11 luffas which i am hanging with others under the hot roof of the pergola to fully dry out prior to washing
After many years of experimenting I plant my garden in 3 waves with tropical varieties planted in October to grow through to May, hot weather vegetables I sow in August and March with my winter sowing in April – the crops cross over for harvest.
Learning to eat tropical vegetables means I am able to grow root crops, green vegetables and squash all year when otherwise I would have a significant period of the year where my garden was less productive.March 31, 2012 at 9:50 pm #515382calliecatParticipant
15 more chokoes :ohmy: and some I just plain cannot reach :blink:
really need to start doing something with them soon, have decided against the chutney, might look at pickles
