Vegies coming and going

It's coming to that time of the year where out in the vegie patch there is quite a lot of tidying up and preparation under way.
My corn is finished, my butter beans are almost all eaten (apart from the bags of frozen ones in the freezer for winter) and the tomato plants look terrible as the last few bits of fruit ripen. The cut tomato above is Black Russian and it is absolutely fantastic - so flavoursome! Pumpkins are being harvested.
I've got brocolli growing which I am looking forward to and am trying to get some carrots and beetroot going again (which would be easier if a certain furry fiend would stop running over the top of them).
Lots to do out there!
Have a great weekend :-)


  1. Wow Sarah, that is amazing! You put my veggie patch to shame! Well done on your fantastic gardening skills I'm so impressed!
    Have a great weekend in your garden.

  2. I love veggies. I get withdrawals when i don't have them. Shame we dont have a bigger garden for a patch! x

  3. Oh, I'm so jealous Sarah. Our vegie patch was fabulous until the possums discovered it now we struggle to grow anything! Your vegies all look great.

  4. hi Sarah, your veggie patch sounds like mine, but i'm not harvesting my pumpkins just yet. I wait until the stalks are really woody, that way they last all Winter in the garage. I'm also on my last bag of beans in the fridge, so sad. but what i am picking now are late raspberries, which i have to bag on the cane or the birds get them, and trillions of feijoas or green easter eggs as i like to call them. also digging up spuds as i need them. it's all over too soon. cheers, |<..
    oh, btw, i've changed my photo but it's still me in Bathurst.

  5. You so inspire me with this vegie patch of yours and all the wonderful produce you get from it :) Have a wonderful weekend x

  6. There's nothing like your own tomatoes straight from the veggie patch!!
    I havent had a veggie patch in years ... and I so miss it!

    Btw, I love the image of your gorgeous furry friend on your header!
    Have a great weekend gardening!

    Oh, and thanks for your lovely comments.

  7. You grew all these?! They look delicious!!! I wish I had a green thumb. It's more like a brown thumb. Plants die when under my supervision. It's sad. Lol

  8. Really want to grow some of our own this summer! Yours look so perfect! Like a painting...yum!

  9. Put the roast in the oven Sarah...I'm on the way! Enjoy some lovely time in the garden this weekend. You certainly put my pathetic little veggie patch to shame!

  10. I asked for the book Harvest for my birthday this year, it must be so lovely growing your own. We grew some cherry tomatoes, strawberries and various herbs this past summer and the kids loved it. Enjoy your gardening..Rachaelxx

  11. Sarah, so funny that I'm on the other side of the world and just getting ready to put seeds in the ground for the summer as you are approaching the end of the growing season.
    Thank you for letting me know the tree is a Magnolia, I have now given the picture its appropriate label.

  12. Serious yum. I want to plant a veggie garden when we move into our new house, you're gonna have to be my inspiration!


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
