The last few day's harvest: plenty of sugar snap peas, snow peas and broccoli

This is what we harvested from the garden over the last few days. There are four or five good handfuls of sugar snap peas and snow peas, plus a few modest heads of broccoli and broccolini. The broccoli is just coming into its own, so I expect we’ll have quite a lot of this over the coming fortnight.

As it is, this is more than enough to keep the two of us stocked up on green vegetables. And this is without harvesting the pak choy and silverbeet, which is ready and waiting. I might also pick out the two weakest heads of chinese cabbage this week, to give us something to eat, and to leave more space for the remaining plants.

    Hi there,
    I just came across your delightful blog as I was looking for a Permaculture course to attend. My broccoli is just emerging as well, but my snow peas haven’t yet “flowered” if that’s the right word. it’s all very exciting!
    Cheers,
    Aletia
