We have 2 Plum trees and this harvest is from the blood plum that usually produces a grand total of 2 Plums, so I was overjoyed to see a ton on there and we get up the ladder each day and collect a small bucket full which are pretty much eaten throughout the day.
Well my eldest waters my veggie patch so well each day my Zucchinis have done really well and I simply had to make some soup, not the best task on a hot day but it's only going to get hotter this week!
Not the best presentation picture, but this is the final result, Zucchini, Potato, Carrot and Garlic soup. - yum!
Then early this morning I got out there and pulled out all the Onions.
I bundle with string and hang like this to dry after a good wash.
They stay in bundles and are pulled off as needed, other years I have had them hanging until around April but didn't plant too many this year so these will only last us a month. Shall plant many more next year!
Finally this jam is NOT made by myself but my clever soup bus friend and shift boss Rhonda who has a wonderful property at Durham Lead. We had a superb lunch and visit there this weekend and I wish I had brought my camera and taken some garden shots, she kindly let each of my boys take home a bottle of different jam. After sampling the Boysenberry, I wish I had 10 kids!! That was a fleeting thought!!
Had to sneak a final shot of Monty in! According to my middle child he's "chillaxing".
