Our warm season vegetable/fruit harvest were late this year for picking.
For example, we usually don't harvest any cucumbers in May.
But our white spine cucumber and lemon cucumber has just started to supply our kitchen.
I don't have much luck with lemon cucumber.
The lemon cucumber in our garden is not very prolific.
I am hoping I have success collecting white spine cucumber seeds this year.
Eggplants harvest still continues here in May.
Cherrytime capsicum is the most prolific in our garden this year grown from our home-saved seeds.
We harvested several Turkish Leopard Melons.
I think this melon is very heat-tolerant as they survive with neglect and little watering.
The white flowers are weeds growing between the melon plant.
Show how lazy I have become and not caring much about the plant.

Earlier this month, I was a bit impatient and I harvested chocalate capsicum while they were still green or not fully ripen but left some to ripe. Last weekend some has ripen for picking.
Big surprise from the garden is that we got a cauliflower harvest from a one year old plant left growing at the back of our backyard fence. The plant had survived our extreme summer heat without much watering. Amazingly the cauliflower was one of the tastiest home-grown cauliflower I have ever tasted so creamy and sweet, pack full of flavour. I thought it was going to be bitter as the cauliflower curd form in warm weather. Other harvest last week was summer grown carrots, beetroots and eggplants. Finally some of our long chilli has also ripen was so spicy.
We also have some fresh salmon trouts last weekend.
Our house fisherman learn a few trick from his friend and found a new good spot for fishing.
I probably be left alone with Rayyan each Saturday morning now this month.
