Here in Australia we are on the verge of spring.
Friday was a beautiful warm sunny spring day.
Saturday it rained constantly,.
Today it is sunny again with a few clouds in the sky.
The other day I ventured up to the veggie patch to pick some lettuce for my lunch, I took my camera to record what was happening.
Some Cos lettuce.
Some Minuet lettuce, great to pick just a few leaves at a time.
The peas are flowering.
Strawberries are planted.
Beetroot growing in the ground.
This is on the other side of our fence, these are some peach trees growing wild, obviously seeded off one of the old peaches growing on our property.
Notice how green they are now with not many flowers left, how different from just two weeks ago.
We are blessed to live in an area of the world (we live in the sub tropics) where we can grow and harvest vegetables all year long if we choose, although in the heat of summer it gets too hot for a lot of things to grow and be able to keep the water up to them.
I have to admit, I don't do anything in the veggie garden that's VCH's domain.
I attend to the herbs and other plants around the place, there is nothing better than eating your own produce.
We are wanting to get into more fruit and vegetable gardening and have been researching a good Australian garden book to buy, so have borrowed a stack from the local library and we are pouring through each one to decide which we like best and then buy that one, we have narrowed it down to three.
I like components of all three of these books, so it is proving tricky to narrow down.
If you have any recommendations I would appreciate them.
