Today I picked the first zucchinis of the season. For an outlay of $2.50 for a punnet of 4 healthy seedlings on 12th September I have harvested 4 zucchini with a total weight of 1.2kg.
This is only the start as there are plenty more small zucchini and flowers yet to mature.
In just less than 6 weeks – 40 days to be precise – the transformation was complete. The leaves are drooping in the heat of the day. You can also see the last of the lettuce and bok choy which were planted at the same time and we had been harvesting for about 3 weeks.
I have not grown a great deal over the past couple of years as I just seem to have been too busy but I am determined to make more of an effort and successes like these definitely inspire me to keep going.
