Broccoli

It's been one week since the first frost, and in the past couple of days, we've also had nearly an inch of rain.  I had planted the broad beans just a day before the rain began, and I'm going to pick the first broccoli any day now...
 ... the rest of the winter crops are doing well...
.... beetroot, chinese broccoli and, still, in the background are green peppers and the last of the eggplants.  The flowers in front of some of these vegetables is  the first of the coriander crop ending.  I have more planted already.

More beetroot, mangel worzel and "chinese greens"....
Tonight we have leek, pumpkin and potato soup...  mostly garden produce, though the pumpkin came from the side of the road on my way home from the Barossa Valley last week.
