Katrina asked to see some photos of my garden & Saturday was a perfect day to take some as the weather was quite dull so no glare. The garden is mostly in shades of green & lemon at the moment. even my lemons are green!
I’m very excited about my tomatoes this year. A friend gave me some seedlings she’d grown of heirloom varieties & they’ve done very well. All the plants are about 5 foot high & I have fruit on all of them. This is Rouge de Marmande above.
Then there’s Black Cherry,
and Red Pear.
I’ve been eating zucchinis for a while now. Over the weekend I made tuna & zucchini risotto & a zucchini cake to take in to work. I only have one plant but that’s quite enough.
Then, there’s the butternut pumpkin. I’m already looking for pumpkin recipes as there are lots of tiny pumpkins on the vine.
I’m also a bit worried as it seems to be taking over the whole back yard… How big are they supposed to grow? Just as well I like pumpkin!
I also convinced the girls to pose for a few photos. Here’s Phoebe in front of the zucchini
and peering through the daphne at Lucky
who, as usual, looks as though she’s about to take off.
