You're right Geoff, lots of beans, I'm dubious about getting what I want by looking at a pic, but Inspiration have choice. Grub your yellow bean sounds interesting.
Better get myself in gear & order while there is still many available. I'm also on the lookout for large mild chilli for using with hot Chillies to make sweet chilli sauce & for stuffing.

Thanks for the suggestions! ??++

MurrayTart, I find Anaheim a reasonably mild chilli. It would probably be good stuffed too as it's a decent size.

I grew these last year and absolutely loved them. I am growing at least 3 plants this year (or will, if they germinate, only 1/3 so far). They're like a big, mild jalapeno and delicious roasted.

Beaver Dam is a very mild chilli which I like. You can get it from Phoenix Seeds in Tassie

Harvested the first of my late sowed kohl rabi. Not overly big, as I suspect it doesn't like the days getting warmer.

The veggie beds are looking empty now, waiting for the summer crops to get going.

Peas picked today... both sugar snap and snow peas have been very prolific this year.
Wind really knocks the plants around and they need continual maintenance.

I have 6 nicely developed seedlings ready to go, wondering if I should bother planting them though. I've read they do better autumn sown and left to grow over winter and mature early spring (which is how I grow regular cabbages).

Maybe I'll plant one just to see how it goes and then eat the rest in a salad.

Harvested the last of our winter buk choy as well as the usual salad and sandwich greens.

Little problem here
We had a storm and all my bean-stakes from my bean-collection (45 varieties) broke down
Harvesting is difficult and making nice pictures from them too
Will try to post a few but coming weeks are very buzzy
It's the main bulb-selling time here in Normandy
Started harvesting the first pumpkins
Most are mixed Cucurbita Hulless ones

Sorry to hear that, Roland.

Harvested another kohl rabi today, but the rest look like they are going to seed unfortunately. And the last of the green peas yesterday. Now only have silverbeet and beetroot growing, apart from all of the summer crops coming up.

Picked last cauliflower, biggest of the bunch. Won't grow again as a bit too inconsistent. Also harvested some broccoli side shoots, purple buk choy and pulled a few leaves off a bolting tatsoi before I composted it. All for tonight's stir fry.

Grub, I'm beginning to think same thing! Cauliflower, usually struggling to find home fro excess, scabby nothings this year!! Chop, chop, maybe soup or roast?

Wonder if it was poor seedling choice, should have gone Bunnings not market?

Maybe it was a bad season for cauliflowers. I grew two varieties, but both only gave smallish heads. I even had one go straight to seed, in the middle of winter.

We grew Romanesco, often called a broccoli but it's more like a cauli. Anyway, they are slow but produced lovely heads. It's given me an idea for a breeding project: create a sprouting brocc that produces little Romanesco heads. Yum.

First two mini cabbages. Not as dense as last year (looks like was starting to flower inside), I think I planted them a bit late last autumn. Still good though.

Continue to pick snowpeas, hope the end is near, swapped some for broardbeans yesterday.  Bagged up spinach & silverbeet.

I have been picking celery to feed to the rabbits (pet ones of course). It's grown up spindly, not sure why. Anyone have ideas or suggestions? Not enough water?
Beetroot and silverbeet still harvesting. And picked the first two zucchinis of the season yesterday.

Beautiful!

Pulled the last of the American Flag leeks as they were starting to flower. Really happy with them. Temp’s Bendigo Bitza perennial leeks are still going, maybe planted a touch too late for them to settle in before the winter cold.

Last of the broccoli and most of the kale were pulled too, will need that bed for the tomatoes in a few weeks.

Lots of snow peas, and more seem to appear daily. This is the first year I’ve managed to protect them from death by sparrow nibbling, hooray.

Harvesting and processing the probably latest Sweet peppers
Cutting 12 kilo in small pieces  $##@ , a real hell of a job and very time consuming
Vacuuming them ready for the freezer
Made home-made lasagne from the leftover :44:
