With the cooler weather I finally have salad greens again! My garden is so open and has sun for over 10hrs in summer so I haven't been able to grow anything in the salad green category since November.
A lovely basket of rocket and Salad bowl lettuce that was taken to a friends house for dinner and shared with yummy Snapper pie.
Thinning's from my carrots and a lone beetroot that popped up.
My girls are happy with the daily bunches of silver beet they get, devouring them faster than I thought possible.
and in exchange for the leafy greens they provide me with beautiful eggs with the brightest orange yolks I have ever seen.
I cut out a few of my basil plants to make way for some more autumn plantings. This lot will go into some pesto for freezing.
And lastly I just wanted to show you a picture of my brassicas under my new Veggienet, above is 1 week ago.
And today - the growth and health of the plants is amazing. My cabbages outside the net are suffering from cabbage whitefly and in turn there larvae which I thought were aphids to begin with, not the cabbages under the net though they are healthy and pest free. One week, I can't believe the growth!
Tahnks again to Daphne of Daphnes Dandelions for hosting the Harvest Monday blog hop.
