I LOVE MY GARDEN
I have been picking heaps of beans from my Gormet Delight and Cherokee Wax bush beans. Freezing them has been the best way to deal with the glut but fresh, they are oh so yummy! I am now letting a few beans mature on the plant to collect the seed.
My very first tomatoes for the season, YAY. They are small but will be delicious I'm sure. I'm pretty sure they are Tommy Toe that self seeded from last year.
My first pickling gherkins were picked also, time to find another yummy recipe for them and the girls are as always giving us lovely fresh eggs every day, not to mention eating all the scraps from the kitchen and weeds and snails from the garden.
My efforts are well and truly paying off this year, it also helps that everything is behind so I'm actually home to care for my patch instead of running around the countryside with my son's cricket.
