Another lovely day today and picking has just finished at 9.15am. Now to washing & packing. Same thing tomorrow. Then see you at Eveleigh or Taylor Square markets on Saturday morning or Mangrove Mountain Country markets on Sunday morning this week.
This week there is some rocket but you will need to get in early as there isn’t much with the colder nights developing. There’s baby spinach and salad.
Serkan is just starting picking mustard while Craig is out in the jungle picking warrigal greens.
Can you spot the little green tree frog on the red mizuna? Hard to get a photo without scaring it away. The sun is shiny on it’s glistening body, hope it gets a good feed of insects.
Michael is checking out a lettuce to see if it comes up to scratch.
The purple beans haven’t finished but they are very close to it so we are barely able to fill orders. Get in early. Clearly the very hungry caterpillar is doing just that and you can see what he’s eaten for breakfast. So that bean can’t be picked!
Michael is picking plantain growing in among the grass at the end of the row for the salad mix and Claire is picking rocket.
The pumpkins are ready and ripe for the picking! Michael has just cut this Queensland blue.
The pumpkins are like the jack Russell, everyone’s territory is theirs! They acknowledge no boundaries! What you see is a tiny part of the sprawl.
Look at the three beds in the picture from right to left. It shows the progression from ready to plant through small seedling to just about ready to pick on the left. Roughly six weeks.
Craig, out of the jungle, helping Yoon pick baby spinach meticulously.
This week we have the Meyer lemons, oranges, Lebanese cucumbers and delicious greens. Make sure you get to market early and get the best for your body!
Have a lively week!
