Harvest Monday – 12th March 2012

12 Mar

A much smaller harvest week this week. The garden is slowing down – so much is finishing and I have a hungry gap awaiting me soon.

400g Green Dwarf Beans

The leaves are yellowing and definitely finishing up. I’m impressed that they are even producing at all. I’m really willing the next crop to come on, because we use so many of these. Added some to the pumpkin and prawn laksa I made last night.

350g Eggplant

Into (even more) baba ganoush

1kg Tomatoes

The tomatoes are definitely coming to an end now. I pulled out a few over the weekend, and although I didn’t weigh the harvest, it was at least a kilo. Would have been much more without fruit fly damage.

1/2 cup Coriander

Also into the laksa.

2 Lebanese Cucumbers

I’m about to make another batch of bread and butter cucumbers with these.

4 Carrots

A little in a variety of dishes, mostly the fried rice I made on Saturday night.

2 stalks of Celery

Also into the fried rice

25 grams Mulberries

Just the few picked by the kids during the week whenever they ripened.

6 Eggs

Still only 1 layer I believe, but she’s doing a great job. This made up our first dozen during the week and we ate them as a very unglamorous but delicious meal of poached eggs on toast. If I had been feeling more energetic I would have made a hollandaise sauce to go with it.
