My Veggie Harvest for April

My ornamental plants are starting to shed their Summer beauty for more sedate Autumnal finery, but no so the vegetables and herbs. My little veggie planters are brimming with produce waiting to be pickled and we can’t eat it as fast as its growing. I added a few new things this month. I like to plant and grow herbs that are not always available at the local supermarket. A new one is fennel which comes up occasionally in recipes. So this month I added fennel, more coriander, rocket (a red variety), I was gifted three green pepper plants (Thanks Helen!) and added a few more coriander plants as we have had to buy coriander to supplement our own home-grown.

Let’s have a look at whats going on …

Happy Harvesting

By Christine

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

Oh WOW!! Your patch is looking so very colourful and yummy!! That rocket looks delicious! LOVE all the new colours! 🙂
Fennel – hmmm…. I have never tried that before. I also see it in lots of recipes so gotta try it first!
Well done!

Oooh, I’m almost in harvest mode here… another month and I’ll have all sorts, but right now it’s just the kale that overwintered. It’s been fantastic though — the best I’ve grown yet! (I’ve eaten a few bamboo shoots too.)

I love the almost black peppers! I’ve grown ‘black pearl’ for a few years, and those little guys are *hot*. (I’m pretty much a wimp when it comes to peppers though.)
