|Max! and a forming frame wall.|
Although suffering through a nasty cold at our place, we are managing some smiles thanks to our sweet garden! It really is lovely that even when cooped up all week looking after a sick little boy, whilst being sick myself, I can wander out to the garden and find things starting to flourish.
We are always eating freshly picked rocket, as it seems to grow back overnight! Good thing we love it here, and have managed to keep a large block of haloumi on hand to whip up a salad with - also thanks to our abundance of lettuce. (note to self: really no need to buy three punnets of lettuce)...
Our tomatoes are green but constantly growing and there are more flowers, husks are forming on the corn (although the plants themselves are rather small - anyone know if that's OK or means something??), eggplants are getting beautiful purple flowers, sesame leaves are growing well enough for a good Korean BBQ, silver beet/rainbow chard are going well enough for us to eat - although some rain damage, the beans are wonderful we are using them daily in our meals, and well everything just keeps growing! I love to see the effort we put in come to fruition - in a form of edibleness!
Have you got a garden giving goodness?
