Up early this morning at 7am. Well early for a Saturday anyway.
Straight into the garden, turned on the tank to water the veggies, little bit of cleaning up after the dogs, a chat to the chickens then a haircut with my clippers (for me, not the chooks). Then at 8am I turned off the water and started harvesting ripe vegetables from the patch.
Here is my bounty for the day
So many veggies! It makes an ‘almost’ vegetarian’s mouth water. The three large yellowish cucumbers (top left) were for the chickens.
Left to right: Tommy toe, Tigerella, Riesentraube, Self seeded cherry, Broad Ripple Yellow Currant, and Basil at the top.
Finally, a whole large punnet of cherry tomatoes for salads. They are so sweet and tasty. These are all self sown from last years crop of Tommy Toe tomatoes.
I love this time of year. So many ingredients for a summer salad. Delightful and satisfying, knowing that I grew it all myself.
