Yellow banana capsicums,yellow toms + tiny cucumbersJanuary 25, 2009 at 6:07 am #346131Lady BeeKeymaster
Another pile of zucchini and squash, a cucumber, some banana capsicums, 3 cox’s orange pippins and I tried a satsuma plum and a nectarine but they’re not quite ready yet.
Noticed that some critter has stolen all my almonds off the tree. Never thought to net that one :confused:January 25, 2009 at 9:12 am #346132bellaMember
I picked 3 huge Jap pumpkins before they split or rot. Cleaned them off and storing in the laundry. I have to do this most wet seasons or I lose heaps.
Also got a bucket of chokos.
Yesterday dug up over 10kg of sweet potato. Bartered some, cooked some, gifted some, and will try to use the rest up before we go away.
Other than that, a few cherry guavas, passionfruit, the odd tomato, handful of cherry tomatoes, some greens to stir-fry, herbs for the yoghurt-cheese and not enough eggs from our many chickens (on strike again?)…January 25, 2009 at 10:01 am #346133laurieMember

I picked 1 passion fruit, several lemons and several handfuls of queensland nuts – yummo:tup:January 31, 2009 at 1:35 am #346142KatieKMember
A pleasant surprise after the recent rain, the cucumbers started producing again, so picked a couple of those, plus a small handful of beans (another restarter) – thought they’d all died in the recent heat and was trying to get motivated to clean up the vegie patch & prep for a replant. Just goes to show you there’s an upside to being lazy 😀 .
Plus shallots, rocket, capsicum (yellow & green), basil, 3 beautiful figs (yum!), a passion, 6 mangoes and some Macca nuts.January 31, 2009 at 2:21 am #346143Suburbia girlMember
I have been picking heaps of cucumbers – I like to pick them when they are little and juicy. Also picking okra, basil, tomatoes and beans.January 31, 2009 at 3:48 am #346144porgeyMember
Oh the delights of northern living, Mangos, Avos, Macca nuts etc. Im jealous. However I do have beautiful Watermelons and Rockmelons, Tomatoes, Corn, Pumpkins etc to pick soon. This morning I picked some beautiful Snow Peas for lunch and will harvest some Beans and Silverbeet for dinner. No Rhubarb sadly but can buy some from the local organic farm. Cheers GR.
