It was a hotter than usual beginning to March with the temp hovering in the mid thirties until the middle of the month. Since then the mornings have been getting cooler, some even quite chilly so we know the first frosts are just around the corner!
As with seed sowing and planting out, harvesting has been done around 3 market weekends this month. The fruit garden has been neglected this season and it shows in the harvests...the birds ate most of this years fruit. We have had several visits with the Grandtwins plus 1, including having them visit us at the last market which was a real treat!
The Grandtwins go to the carrot patch each visit and pull their own carrots...purple or yellow...once washed they munch them in the garden.
Doesn't include Greens fed to the chooks on a daily basis or herbs picked for use in the kitchen for cooking or tea making. For Salads, Juice and Stirfries I have been picking Silverbeet, Celery, Gotu Kola, Lettuces, Parsley, Beetroot and Sweet Potato Leaves which are not always weighed.
