Another 10 harvested last night, the largest was 2601g, so not too far behind the monster from the previous night.

One of my Hailea V60 air pumps died a couple of days ago- both diaphragms have disintegrated and various other bits have been hammered to death. I suspect the ongoing very hot weather hasn't helped- the pumps are extremely hot to touch when operating. Fortunately I only have a few trout left and the 2nd (continuously operating, battery inverter powered) backup pump is still ok, so no fish losses, even with the water temperature around 20C.

I harvested the remainder of the potatoes in the GB I started on a couple of weeks ago- another 7.8kg, so over 14kg in total from that GB. I'll have to plant another crop in there for now, maybe spring onions, as it is a good idea to practice crop rotation with spuds. The hessian bags I used for this potato crop almost completely disintegrated, so now there is a fair bit of soil mixed into the top of the gravel, and it's full of worms.

Here is the last of the grapes growing on a vine in one of the GBs, they have been delicious. Next time we'll put some seedless varieties in.

7 more trout harvested last night, there can't be too many left in there now- I'll have a look later today. It might be time to get out the huge net again.

Those look tasty Gordon :thumbright: . I should try mine in AP. Can't say I know what I'm doing but it's Winter here so I just finished pruning the grapes back - supposedly 4 different types (one was mislabeled so really only 3 I think :think:) , all seedless varieties. Got a pretty good crop out of the Interlaken and Canadice grapes this last summer and made raisins with the extras. Nothing out of the Black Monukka grapes, the vine seems to grow more slowly than the others and they're all probably only 3 year old.

I picked 7.4kg of Ottway Red potatoes from one of the WBs on Friday, sold 2.5kg at the Saturday market, and we'll eat the rest. I didn't add more soil as this lot grew, so not as productive as the bags in the GBs, which I did add soil to.
I'm going to plant the WB out with spring onions today.

Also harvested over 6kg of Sebago potatoes from a single hessian bag sitting in a GB a week ago. Sold half of them at the market... but we are eating a lot of spuds ;)

There are still more spuds in another WB, but I'll leave them a week or 2 more.

I've picked a few cucumbers and one spaghetti squash in the past week too. The rhubarb continues to yield heaps of stalks, most of which are sold at the markets.

I got into the FT a few days ago to have a look around with goggles, but it was mostly too dark to see the trout other than the ones that brushed by my feet, however, I doubt there are more than about 5 left.
