Today I picked 3 cabbages, some kale, spring onions, carrots, celery, and parlsey. I bandicooted some potatoes so we had slow-cooked lamb shanks (on sale today) mashed potatoes and fried green leafy stuff for dinner.
I also found four eggs in the chooks yard… for tomorrow’s breakfast.September 5, 2009 at 10:28 am #393008virgillMember
Too cold still down here – nothing is maturing at a great rate.
Expect for the snow peas – but my 3 year old eats them before I can salvage enough for dinner LOL.
But the ladies have gone into overdrive – getting 7 eggs per day now.September 5, 2009 at 10:36 am #393009Duck Diva_73Member

6 asparagus spears, 4 small carrots, 6 logan berries, and hard to believe but 4 passionfruit and 3 buckets of weeds.September 7, 2009 at 10:24 am #393011boy wranglerMember
Not really me, but my DS (2) picked our first cherry tomato that was almost red. He was so excited because we’d been telling him that when they get red we can eat them, so we came home from a weekend away and he came running over with it, “Mummy, it red now!” So beautiful!September 7, 2009 at 10:27 am #393012kerriebMember

And 2 mice in the traps:rip:September 15, 2009 at 10:32 am #393016FeyWindMember
Do you give the dead mice to the chickens narelleh? 😡 Then you can get some nutrients back that they’ve been stealing!
I’ve been harvesting snowpeas (be sad when they’re gone), chinese cabbage, lettuce, eggs, mint and parsley.
Looking at the tiny peaches and nectarines and drooling in anticipation 😀September 15, 2009 at 12:05 pm #393017
no feywind – I usually do but I sent DS out with them this time.
I put cages over all the pumps,and melons and cucumbers to protect them DH has covered his strawberries with a wire net and the toms are1 for us and 2 for them:@
Also collected fennel and hot chillies:tup:September 16, 2009 at 11:53 am #393018

Well I did the 1st harvest of my home grown peas yesterday i took them out of their pods and cooked them for dad ( I hate peas) and he loved them, I said to him nothing beats home grown Veg cause I know what I put into them liek horse poo generously supplied by my horse and water absolutely no chemicals what so ever!!!! So I can happily say my Peas are grown organicly.
I did pull out the brussells though as nothing grew on them so now I have the task of figuring out what to put in their placeSeptember 20, 2009 at 9:06 am #393020dustygrl70Member
sugarsnap peas, beetroot, swedes, lettuce, first garlic for the season and even a passionfruit that hung on over winter!
The nectarines are starting to smell delicious and I need to FF bait asap…October 24, 2009 at 7:37 am #393021df418Member
Was watering the spuds this morning and ran out of water in the can and 2 spud plants hadn’t been watered. Thought … I could walk back to the drum and refill or harvest them.
Hands up the other lazy sods amongst ALSers.
We had minted new potatoes with dinner, also coleslaw (sugarloaf cabbage, carrots, onion, celery, chives and chilli all home grown) and sausage (Woolies special)
First decent crop of spuds we have grown.
