Harvest Monday, 4 November 2019

Welcome to Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. For the background behind Monday harvests, please visit the Our Happy Acres blog.

Super busy. Harvested a few snack-y type things, took photos, forgot to post.

Garlic

Garlic

Probably harvested too early. But I’m about to go away, and the last time I left them in the ground over November (although technically I’m supposed to wait until the summer solstice), my garlic rotted. No seed garlic, I think it was a “rose” variety of garlic that I bought at a market stall.

Honey. About 12kg. I don’t remember harvesting in October before, it looks like there’s a bit of a honey flow going on.

More blueberries (Sunshine Blue), growing in a pot.

Planted more soybean seeds (endamame). I think I’ve planted about 30, and so far only 3 look to have germinated. Fingers crossed they survive!

Also planted some blue butterfly pea seeds and purple tomatillos. I think blue/purple is my colour of the year.

I left it too long with the purple “sapphire” seed potatoes, and the slaters have started to eat them. I’ve had more luck with the “midnight specials” which have at least started to sprout.

So dear reader, what have you harvested from your garden recently? Is your also garden dying from lack of attention?

  1. Good luck with the collard greens! I would think they would do well for you in your climate.

  2. Fun to read about your garden as you approach the summer solstice.
