Alpine strawberry producing many white flower that will give sweet fruit which Ilhan love so much. Strawberry is unique the seeds are outside on the skin rather than inside which is more common. The one we grow on the veggie bed have to share with other creatures, found many of them has already been eaten this month.
Coriander flowers that will give seeds that can be useful in the kitchen. Fresh dried coriander seeds can be one of the ingredient to marinade beef satay. I still have plenty of coriander seeds from my first batch of home save seed coriander. Friends visiting during Raya happy to take home coriander seedlings from us. I had too many seedlings glad that my seedlings had someone else to take care of them.
Telephone peas just enough for Ilhan. I did daydream of freezing them if I had too many. However it seems not enough maybe plant more next year since Ilhan is a fan of peas.The seeds are very easy to collect because of the seed pod size. Just leave them dry and collect later.
Our first batch of tomato fruit from “Stupice” variety that died due to last year heatwave and start regrowth in winter. This tomato plant type actually is not suitable for Adelaide summer from last year trial. It is not heat tolerant. It is early variety type produce many nice fruit for us in the beginning of summer. However, later cannot withstand the summer heat in Adelaide.I think it is more suitable for cooler region in Australia. “Stupice” variety is from Chezkozlavakia. Two plants survived but did not produce fruit until now from last summer. I will let them fruit and collect the seeds. Maybe this type I can grow well in autumn here when the weather is much cooler in full sun.
