It's been a funny old week. I've been relishing in the peace that the first week of school going back brings, but I've been shattered so not much else has taken place other than boring domestic stuff!
The garden however has taken off. Things are happening in the glass house, my lovely put some stones down the middle as a path and plumbed a tap in there which is connected to a rain water tank off the studio. I'd usually be a lot more organized on the vege front by now, a reminder of how a new babe can disrupt the 'routine' for a lot longer than you always anticipate!
I'm trying a few new tomatoes including one called German red strawberry. Last year I grew 'Black from Tula' It was a total winner & I'd strongly recommend it. Cherokee purple is another good cropper with large fruit. When it comes to greens you can't beat Cavelo nero (A kale member, bottom pic) It just grows & grows even when every thing else has been eaten by the snails or caterpillars. You feel healthy just looking at it!
So....whats growing in your neck of the woods?
