Growing local

*Sorry for late post, have a backlog!*

July 2017 Harvest:

- 17 passionfruit

- 980g red eggplant

- 300g red scotch bonnet chillis (that's what they are called!)

- 4 chokos

- 8 cherry tomatoes

- 180g pumpkin flowers

- 1 purple eggplant

- 2 cumquats

- 2 strawberries

- 5 lettuces + tatsoi + kale

- 1 cup nasturium capers


- 4 sourdough loafs

In July I had a surplus of some veg that I was proudly able to give away: more passionfruit, eggplant and chokos than I could comfortably eat! The Lettuce were doing gloriously, as was the red eggplant. Tatsoi was a lovely addition to salads (Thanks Cathy) and some pretty flowers popping up (chicory, pigeon pea.. and that mysterious white one not sure what it is!

Looks good Sophie.  I still haven't managed to give breads a go.

I also enjoy seeing how others are growing and what's being made.
