Last orders from our winter vege garden

The last haul of broccoli from the garden
The last haul of broccoli from the garden

We recently went away for a two week break to Western Australia. Just as we left, the weather was warming up and the garden was delivering its last harvest.

Luckily we lined up our next door neighbours to harvest the garden as well as look after the cat. When we got back, they told us that they had so many sugar snap peas, snow peas and broccoli that their family of four couldn’t get through it all!

Even after that, we still had a huge haul of brocolli, as shown above, plus pak choi, and peas.

But it’s now time to wind up the winter growing season, with spring on our doorstep. We need the space, so I pulled out the sugar snap peas this morning, and the old chinese cabbage. The pak choi will be next to go, along with the snow peas and carrots.

Onto the next round of growing (and eating!).
