    Heres the sink HBG……………sink on legs;)…………..with extras, someone elses discarded el cheapo pergola bits to make shelf and side/back. Water is plumbed in from the well pump irrigation line and drains onto veggie garden slope, so the dirt washed of goes into the garden instead of the septic.

    I love my outdoor sink too chezza and i had to start picking the capsicums green as there are so many ( and big ) that the bushes are falling over.

    Picked carrots,celery,daikon radish, beans,cabbage, shallots and more tomatoes and capsicum and put together a mean veggie soup for lunch:tup:

    Just spent a few hours pulling out weeds and fixing garden- came inside with 7 carrots (including some purple and yellow ones), some celery, red silverbeet, cherry tomatoes and some dead bean pods to dry for the seeds.

    Would have had some sugar snap peas but the 2yr old got to them before i could bring them inside. Guess its one of the better things to snack on!

    Hey, anyone got any ideas of how to use mizuna that has gone wild? Not too keen on using it for salads, there is way too much for that.

    Well today was a big day for harvesting DH said we may need to get the pickers in.

    I struggled on and I picked some rainbow chard, rocket, broccoli, triffids and the best thing was a beautiful perfect whole 45gr mushroom 😆 we had a stir fry for tea.

    I’m envious of your capsicum growing abilities, RTB!! I’m harvesting turnips, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage and potatoes now. And gorgeous pawpaw too!!

    JaJeKa, you can use mizuna in stir fries as well as in salads.

    Not much this time of year broccoli, eggs and a few herbs and my last mandarin. A bunch of silver beet for the chooks we’re a bit over it at the moment. Spent more time potting up seedlings and planting seeds in the glasshouse today.

    I get a bit jealous of anyone up north this time of year.
