I have not bought any green vegetables from the shop for over two months now. My little vege patch has been producing ample sufficiency for us. There is nothing nicer than to go outside and pick vegetables and herbs from your own garden. I have never had so many veges growing until I moved here to the country. Back in the city, sandy soil was my enemy, not so here. I have a new found interest in my vege patch now.
This is this morning's pickings. Beetroot, sugar snap peas, silver beet and mixed lettuce. In all I picked about 4 bunches of silver beet and froze some for later use. The beetroot I have cooked and bottled. I have also dried parsley and coriander for when there is none. We have broad beans, leeks, strawberries, sweet corn, cucumbers, pumpkins, onions, rhubarb, potatoes and blueberries plus herbs growing too. Cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage have all finished now .
