From Mid-January till this end of January, we harvested several first harvest warm-loving vegetables for this summer season. Since we are into Mid-Summer, the tomato harvest is reducing due to too hot weather for them to produce proper blooms. Although it is still enough for our kitchen used. The yellow cherry tomatoes seems to like this very hot weather compared with other tomatoes. I am glad we planted several variety of tomatoes this year to determine which does well with the climate here.First capsicum harvest for this year, but the size were less than half size of last year. We freeze all the lady fingers (okra) and beans harvest. Button Squash has been one of the big producer in the garden constantly supplying the kitchen table its produce.
Not a really suitable time to grow Pak Choi's. I harvested most of the Pak Choi's before I lose the leaves to the heat waves. Our newcomer for this warm season, Green Gem Cucumber is also helping us to keep cool with constant supply, an early producer and long harvesting season. Green Gem Cucumber is suitable to grow here in Adelaide, it is heat tolerant and grow quickly even in cooler weather. I need to decide what cabbage to grow next autumn. I won't but any earliball cabbage variety, not a reliable producer.
I tried growing turnip in spring but it grow so slowly. After 4 months, turnip still does not produce fat root. I will attempt to grow turnip again this autumn. Any tips for growing turnip?
Harvested potatoes, red onions and brown onions that were grown from supermarket which sprouted shoots before we can cook it.
