Sparse harvest

It seems you can have too much of a good thing and we've had too much rain in NSW. The trees are loving it - especially the Ballerina apple and dwarf macadamia - with lots of new growth to be seen. But the veggie garden has stopped producing. Not enough sunshine for strawberries and tomatoes. The pumpkin, zucchini and squash are delivering tiny little specimens not worth harvesting. The only thing that is producing well is the eggplant/aubergine. The one below was sliced, coated in breadcrumbs and eaten schnitzel style.

Today I managed to find a lone pak choy to put with a shallot and a half-size capsicum as part of a sweet and sour pork dish. There are more eggplants to be harvested but no seedlings (too wet) so hopefully I can find some time this weekend to sow.
