The days are now longer and this our tenth Garden Bloggers Harvest Day, the 5th day of October 2012 in the Southern Hemisphere.  Two Gardens are spending more and more time out doors! Spring showers are the order of the day, but the sun is warming the days and invigorating the growth of our plants.

Let’s see what can be harvested from Barbie’s Garden this month

The sowing of seeds has been done and I am patiently waiting for something to happen. I remember that last years harvest selection was all about herbs and that’s what I have to show this month.  Its all about herbs and salad greens, but let me show you what I can harvest so far ….

My red cabbages are looking healthy, but the slugs are causing some damage in the veggie patch.

Cauliflower still needs to grow

Sage is a good companion plant here

Edible Nasturtiums

Origanum-agreat one for pasta sauces

Arugula (Sweet Rocket) has been a huge favourite in all my dishes. Now it is flowering and the flowers are also delicious.

Potatoes in my new Tater Sacks

Here again – a week later


Two types of Thyme

Lemon Balm (Melissa) Great tea!

Well used Coriander

I keep some herbs close to the kitchen door for those quick seasoning needs! Sweet Basil, Thyme, Celery, Parsley and Spring Onions.

Cos lettuce-one of my favourites

Red Curly lettuce

Oak leaf and Iceberg Lettuces

Swiss Chard and Celery

Beetroot-greens also edible

Broad beans-abit ravaged

My new arches

Celery grows everywhere

Love Chives
