Thought it might be nice to share what we are currently harvesting and picking.

I do a lot of picking on weekends as we have a roadside stall that I stock up on high traffic days in the hope of making some extra money for extra mulch, seeds and plants.

Today I picked: limes, finger limes, chillies, apple cucumbers, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, cherry tomatoes and zucchini.

Yeah Bugboy, you are a total show off Laughing

I want to show off now. Geez I am so glad I saw this thread cos yesterday I yielded BIG! lol

Last night I made a stir fry out of home grown beans, broccoli, capsicum, bok choy and beetroot leaves (will use the beetroot in a chicken roast tonight).

If only the chook was home grown. I am so desperate for 20 acres or so somewhere. I was dreaming on Real Estate website today. It's raining here and the boys have been watching two DVD's (yeah I know, bad parents we are). But I got in some internet lusting time, which for me is looking at rural properties. Wink

Just before we harvested 2 chilli's, some cherry toms and a capsicum as a part of dinner. As well as basil and italian parsley. The 5 year old harvested lots of strawberries for herself and threw a few into my mouth. YUM! Oh and we hadn't collected eggs for a couple of days so we had 5 eggs too. It's lovely when one harvest could make you a dinner - on an urban inner city block. Very Happy

I am thinking of getting another chicken......

I have two chickens ready to harvest, unfortunately (for us) one of them is a consistent layer so she has earned herself and her friend a reprieve as we can't be assed doing just one bird.

Today I harvested - mandarins, oranges, limes, kale, lettuce, tomatoes, coriander and pak choi.

Looking forward to harvesting cows too Smile

Lemons, oranges and limes and lots of them. My pumpkins are coming on.

I am anticipating that the chickens will stop laying soon. Anyone have any ideas how I can keep them laying through Winter or is it important that they have a 'rest' over the coldest time of the year?

Well as we are newly moved here, not much, the lemon tree is groaning, so lots of those, scavenging macadamias off the ground, and unfortunately deciding I have to start trapping possums if I'm going to have anything at all to eat from garden and orchard, they are over running NZ and causing massive damage. At the moment they carefully peel the lemons on my tree, leaving the peeled lemon hanging there!

I hate the idea of killing them but to give an idea of the scale of the problem, 4000 were trapped and killed last year in 2 days in the pine forest behind us. Sad and there are plenty more where they came from...

Why oh why Gov John Grey???? Evil or Very Mad

That's a hard call BlueSkyBee. Particularly since you lived in Australia for a while where trapping and killing possums is frowned upon, but I am well aware of the issues that NZ has with them. You've gotta eat. xo

Today...it's been raining here and surprisingly warm. Eggs and some yummy herbs to go with dinner is what we harvested here. Smile

I wish my girls would start laying again, we go through so many eggs....

Today I harvested kale, basil, sugar snaps, snow peas, shelling peas (only a few made it to the house Laughing ), limes, oranges, grapefruit, coriander and mint.

I also tossed some pak choi that had gone to seed to the chooks Smile

Oooo Bugboy, did you keep some seeds to replant your pak choy


I picked some snow peas, .....they never make it inside Laughing


My girls have kept laying right through this year, i have 8 chooks, and usually get 4 or 5 eggs everyday.
One silkie bantam has surrogate hatched two chicken, so she isn't laying, so the others really are
doing a great job.
