Big Black Russian Toms, yummy I think I will make some turkish bread today and have a BLT.
This is my late planted Big Rainbow, it is absolutely covered in Tomatoes, and heaps of flowers. The seeds are from the Diggers Club who say that one plant can produce 17kg !! I hope so.
These are the pumpkins I have picked. Some people say you should just wait for the vines to die down but these all seemed to be holding the vines back from producing more female flowers, so off they came.
Here is a shot of part of the pumpkin patch, there is now another 2 Australian Butters growing and another 5 or 6 Red Kuri's. We will have plenty of pumpkin for winter use.
Isis Candy is one of my favourite cherry tomatoes, they are sweet and juicy as well as prolific.
The Blue Ballet squash are doing well and the 2 extra plants I added at the end of December have both set their first fruit.
Very excitingly the chook shed was finished, so we are off today to buy some point of lay girls.
Here are my totals for the week.
Zucchini 3.160 kl
Cucumbers 1.380 Kl
Sweet Corn 1.250Kl
According to my spread sheet, from the start of January my garden has produced $695.41 worth of veggies! Crazy.
There was also Basil and parsley that I used to make dips and pesto with but I don't weight those (even though the are about $4.00 per bunch and I probably grabbed a couple of bunches)
