Belladonna Bess

An edible garden in Wellington, NZ

Cleanup December 20, 2009

Harvesting: the last of the broad beans, Jersey Benne potatoes (a woeful crop, and half of them appear to be Desiree, which must have resprouted from last summer), silver fir potatoes (just a few, and I haven’t eaten any myself yet), silverbeet, sugar snap peas, rhubarb (giant), cabbage, savoy cabbage. Pulled up the only 2 shallot plants still alive, one was trying to flower. I’m hoping they will dry off and at least keep a month or so.

Eating: as above, plus a few blueberries, currants and raspberries. My whitecurrant is most definitely red. That is the second time that has happened to me – how odd. My O’Neal blueberry is completely dead. The others look fine, but then so did the O’Neal 2 weeks ago. Not sure what is going on.

Planting: another Zephyr zucchini and 2 more yellow cucumbers. A couple more tomatoes, just to get them out of the greenhouse.

Lessons for next year: don’t plant sugar snap peas and shelling peas side by side in the garden. Plant more broad beans. Give them some sort of support, or they will sprawl all over the path.
