We were away again for a couple of days last week and so again we only harvested what either we or my sister could use.
The crops gathered in seem to have fallen into a similar pattern to last week.
I'm not expecting the sweet peas to carry on producing flowers for much longer but they have been great this year and the house has rarely been without a couple of vases stuffed with flowers.
Following some comments from last week, I thought that I should clarify the size of our kiwi berry - Issai. As you can see from the photo they are nothing like the size of the more commonly seen kiwis. What they lack in size they make up for when tasting which is a more concentrated kiwi flavour. We haven't had many fruits this year and need to try and increase production next year.
At the other end of the size scale this week is this Kings of Colour tomato. Whilst this one isn't the biggest tomato we have ever grown (if you are interested in viewing our current record holder we have a video here taken back in 2009), but it was fairly large and not our only decent sized specimen.
The home greenhouse grapes are still being harvested.
Some of our carrots may be a strange shape but who cares when they taste so good?
Now that the large central heads of the calabrese plants have been cut the plants are sending out side shoots - I guess it is the vegetable equivalent of dead heading.
Finally we picked a fairly large sweet pepper and some mini aubergines. The aubergines may be smaller than we would hope for but were perfectly formed.
Once again I am linking to Harvest Monday over at Daphne's Dandelions.
