It has been a busy day in my sadly neglected, yet surprisingly productive garden today. Lots of cleaning up to be done in the intermittent rain- pulling out the spent tomato plants, the weeds and the vines that will no longer ripen. Case in point, the rockmelons. I am fairly certain these came from the compost. Loads of self seeded seedlings coming up - rocket, Queen Anne's Lace (already!), coriander, and broccolini amongst other things. Harvested today: silverbeet, rocket (Italian and French), two stray cucumbers, parsnips I practically had to excavate, some sad looking baby beets, the last of my yellow pear tomaotoes, loads of parsley and a bunch of young cavolo nero.
I had been thinking of sowing a green manure but there are simply too many goodies coming up. My sort of gardening...
When I am not busy sewing down at our island retreat, I love spending time in my organic edible garden or in the kitchen.
