Garlic, pulled up and plaited for drying...
This season's first meal of potatoes, bandicooted from the black plastic recycling bin they've been growing in amongst layers of sugar can mulch and newspaper. I have to say it's worked well and makes them so much easier to harvest than digging them out of the ground.
Freshly dug potatoes taste very similar to store bought ones, but they have the most incredible texture - smooth and remarkably creamy. For those that think they're not worth growing, you've got to try them.
Parboiled, squashed a little, then roasted in olive oil and garlic. Yum.
The first golden zucchini from the tub experiment.
Going well so far...
The summer wine barrel. Great to be able to grow these guys smack in the middle of the courtyard where they get full sun.
Had to get the string stakes up. The November heat wave shot the tomatoes up like crazy.
Last of the broad beans. Can't wait to plant these again.
Orchids in full flower, just because they're beautiful.
Blueberries ready to ripen. How am I going to stop the blackbirds this time?
