Harvest Monday: 2nd January

Today has been a scorcher: it was 38.1at 5:50pm and now is still 31 degrees. The garden is looking a bit wilted but I will get up early to water tomorrow as it is forecast to be hot again with a top of 36 and winds tending northwesterly up to 25 km/h before the change.
This year I will be devoting each Monday to a record of the harvest that week so here goes for the first week:

26/12: 1 kg zucchini, 5 eggs
27/12: 5 eggs
28/12: 350g carrots, 300g zucchini, 4 eggs, few leaves lettuce
29/12: 5 eggs
30/12: 500g carrots, 550g zucchini, 100g cherry tomatoes, 4 eggs
31/12: 50g Carliston green pepper, 300g zucchini, 100 cherry tomatoes, 5 eggs
1/1: 1 butter crunch lettuce, 1.5 kg zucchini, 4 eggs
2/1: 1.6 kg zucchini, 150g cherry tomatoes, 50 Carliston green pepper, 5 eggs
So that is

zucchini 5.2 kg
lettuce 1 butter crunch
carrots 850g
green peppers 100g
cherry tomatoes 250g
eggs 32

  1. Wow those peppers crop early - when did you plant them? You are good to weigh things I should as I know I'd find it interesting but my self discipline is not what it could be at times....
