Garden Bloggers Harvest Day in March

The summer has past and we are going into autumn this Garden Bloggers Harvest Day in March and the veggie patches of  Two Gardens will be in the middle of refurbishment. We will be seeing the last of the lettuce and the summer veggies. Now is the time for clearing out the old and anticipating new growth!!!! The weatherman is still slinging heatwaves at us, so let’s see what we have been busy with this month!

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

The baskets full of veggies have come to an end – pity! But we are still able to harvest some delicious tomatoes and sweet basil. The Lemon tree is bursting with fruit – this is a treat for me because there is so much we do with lemons!! I grew my first cucumber – and it was delicious!! I see a few more on the vine so we look forward to lots more. The veggie patch is bare and this month I will be clearing and feeding the soil. Not much to show but at least it is an assortment of goodies.

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Oh, your photos are making me anxious for our summer garden. It will be months before I see another fresh cucumber. Your eggplant looks lovely too. I made so much Baba Ghannouj with grilled eggplants last summer. I swear I could live on that, and pita bread, alone! And look at those eggs! Looks like someone was very busy! I love your little nest boxes by the way 🙂

I am always amazed at how the cucumbers grow from that wee little pinky-sized sprout to a big cucumber. It is so amazing. You are so lucky to have lemons…wow…wonderful! Happy harvest and thank you for hosting!

You have lots growing but I suppose autumn is really the most abundant season, that’s why harvest festivals are in autumn! Do you make lemon curd and marmalade with your lemons? I also make preserved lemons which means I have lemons to add to dishes when maybe there are no fresh ones in the garden. Egg plants are THE most versatile of all the vegetables. I use them for Babaganoush, roasted vegetables, ratatouille, Thai curries and of course a mass of Italian recipes some of them are on my blog. Thanks for hosting. Christina

Thanks so much Christina – I will check out all your recipes for Eggplant! They sound delicious!! Hmmmm…. lemon curd and marmalade. Need some tips on this too 🙂

Harvesting eggs! Love it! And I can’t believe all the lemons! Wow! I really am going to have to spring for a lemon tree! I’m also impressed with your figs. Love your herb area!
