After the particularly cold, wet and windy spring just gone, we’re happy to have our summer veggie gardens kicking into gear at last.
The tomatoes are setting fruit, which is a pretty significant time in the life of a veggie gardener! The emergence of those first few green tomatoes brings with it that familiar sense of excitement and anticipation.
The quinoa, pumpkins and potatoes all seem to be enjoying our newest growing space. It was freshly tilled over late winter, then the ducks and geese cleared and fertilised it for several weeks before we finally planted it out.
A few weeks back, we pulled and processed over 1000 bulbs of garlic. By the end of this season, we’re also hoping to have a bumper crop of chillies, with over 40 plants in the ground. Garlic and chilli for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
And of course, the ever faithful zucchinis are keeping us well fed in the meantime.
