Harvest Monday

Time for another Harvest Monday, where gardeners from around the globe get the chance to show off what they have harvested from their gardens, hosted as always by the lovely Daphne.
This week I harvested the last 3 cauliflower from the garden.
Some asparagus and podding peas.
And two very oddly shaped Chantenay carrots and a few side shoots of broccoli. What have you harvested this week?

The Flowers That Bloom in the Spring, Tra la

With so little happening in the vegetable garden at the moment, I thought I would share some of what is happening in the flower gardens right now. Enjoy!
Snap dragons
Nemesia
Geraldton wax "Raspberry Ripple"
Scabiosa "Samantha's Pink".
Wonga Wonga vine, this photo does not do it justice, it is absolutely gorgeous.
My favourite rose, Double Delight.

Sweet peas
Not technically in the garden but close enough, Swan River Pea.

Garden Share Collective September 2014

It's September, already! Is it just me or does this year seem to be flying by at an alarming rate.
August was a month of unseasonably warm weather during the day, cold nights and no rain.
What's been happening in the garden?  There are blossoms on the plum and orange trees,

and the shelling peas are starting to produce.
   Harvests in August were mostly cauliflower and broccoli, along with the odd carrot.
The snow and sugar snap peas were a real disappointment this year, last year I had so many I didn't know what to do with them all and this year the plants only produced 783 grams. I have sown more sugar snap peas in the hope of getting some more before the weather gets too hot and if I can find room for them I will sow more snow peas too.

TO DO:
Sow seeds of tomatoes, spinach, silverbeet, basil, snow peas, coriander and cucumber. Linking up with Lizzie at Strayed from the Table.
