Harvesting from my garden

May 8th, 2011 at 01:21 pm

I have a few vegetable plots and fruit and herb trees. Over my lemon tree my choko vine has grown over it so I am planning of removing it some time next week then prune the lemon tree some what as it has some problems that needs looking into. As I was working down stair in the backyard area I look out at my tomatoes vines to a sea of ripe red small tomatoes then looking past them seeing last season lemons that need picking for juicing as I have two seasons crop growing as itís has two crops per year. Then looking at the choko vine thatís over lemon tree help large Chokoes hanging there waiting to be picked.

Having finishing off my washing I collected my washing basket filling it with 12 large Chokoes 7 large lemons and small container of full tomatoes as well cutting off the flower heads of my aniseed seeds so I have fresh seeds for next year. I donít need to plant any seeds as many a seeds drops as I pulled these plants out so they will self seeds this year. My herb garden is doing well and a new crop of Italian parsley is coming along fine. My curry tree was prune last week so drying some leaves to use in my cooking. Will pick some bay leaves to dry soon too!

My crop (sorry about the colour.)

This Is the corner of the garden that the chokoes grow in.

    Very nice garden! In California and Idaho, the choko is known as "chayote." I use it in soups or steamed, topped with butter and seasonings. How do you prepare it?

    It's a bit over grown at the moment, I am working on thinning it out a bit. Some trees in the back ground will be cut down and newer trees will grow instead they are in the undergrowth. This picture is only 1/8th of my garden.
