The garden always looks bare over winter although monty’s tomatoes somehow survived – and they are in pots. Go figure.
We’ve had some lovely limes, a few herbs, eggs of course and a bit of silverbeet, but we are really looking forward to planting again this spring, all ready for garden plundering during the long days of summer.
The last couple of summers have been a bit awful for gardening. Adelaide was ( and still is I guess *blush*) on level 2 water restrictions. Basically, we could use the hose on the garden once a week for 2 hours. Anyone with half a life who’s trying to go a veggie garden knows how just-about-impossible that is. If you get distracted and miss your watering slot – that’s it for the week, unless you just break the law troll around and around with a watering can.
So, full of watery optimism we went to the plant shop and this is what we’ve got so far:
- chillies – different ones
- more silverbeet
- yellow and green dwarf beans
- snap peas
Miffy already has potatoes, coriander and snow peas growing and monty has prepared the ground for the other stuff. I think I’ll put the chillies in pots on the porch.
This is today’s lunch and the eggs, silverbeet and tomatoes all came from the garden. very delicious it was too.
Have a lovely Sunday!
