Simple Pleasures Sunday November 2, 2008

So yesterday evening we got out in the garden and harvested some of our produce

I was very pleased to be able to cart a bucketful of veges back down to my kitchen

TJ was quite fascinated with the whole project. It’s one thing for me to try to explain what grows under ground and how, but quite another to him to be able to actually see them being dug up

He kept exclaiming in wonder how ‘FRESH!’ everything smelt. lol

I reckon we ended up with nearly a kilo of onions, 3 kilos of spuds, a kilo of carrots and 6 good heads of cauliflower plus a couple of punnets of berries yesterday. Not bad at all

And no chemicals, no transporting, no cold storage, no nothing

Hi Bettina, visiting from WTBAY! Your veges are so impressive! I will tell my husband who is starting a vege patch at our place – he’ll be inspired no doubt!

Thanks Louisa. I hope your husband has a lot of success with his patch too. ~ B

Those berries look kick ass.

Oooh – excuse me while I just wilt from cauliflower envy up here – we tried and have admitted defeat after our spread out sporadic head gave such disappointment.

I am very very very impressed!!

Ooooooh! Lightly steam that cauli, chuck it in some cumin and coriander and quickly fry in a frypan with some ghee and I am on my way over babe!

Very impressive. I once grew potatoes by accident. They grew from peelings thrown onto the compost heap and were the best tasting potatoes ever! At the moment my Black Russian tomato and the Red Fig also have about 6 baby tomatoes each. I can’t wait to try a Black Russian tomato, or to toss a few Red Figs into a salad.

Wow – I’m totally impressed. I know who I’m going to badger, I mean come to when I get serious about my veggies 😉
