Even though I don't have detailed photos of our vegetable garden, I felt I should post these to prove that my garden is THRIVING! We cannot wait for the young gem squashes (one has already appeared under the vines) and new carrots. The basil and chives are also almost ready for use.
With all the summer rains we've had since October, my vegetable garden has flourished. Here I have runner beans, bush beans just behind that, chives, carrots, potatoes, pumpkin and gem squashes (none of the last six are visible in this photo!)
Here in front of the runner beans are my first lettuce heads just beginning to form. Behind me (not photographed!) are tomatoes, chillies and coriander. To the left of this photo, across the lawn, the sweet basil, brinjals (aubergines), green peppers and swiss chard plants are shooting up fast and furious. I'll go out there shortly (when the rain stops, ha!) and take some more photos.
To all my precious blogger friends who may be going off to spend the season with family and friends, may your Christmas be blessed and 2011 be a Christ-filled year.
