I’ve been MIA for a while so it’s nice to be back into the Harvest Monday theme.
In general I’m feeling a little flat and uninspired and the garden is looking like I’m feeling. A very good friend of mine tragically lost a child the same age as Miss Three and who was probably her closest playmate. We’re all sad. Miss Three and I are having lots of quiet cuddles. I can’t imagine how it would feel as a mother to go through this.
The result has been a break from blogging and not much happening in the garden. When I did finally venture out this is what I found.
Over a kilo of cherry tomatoes
A motley crew of cucumbers
Four long eggplants
One MEGA zucchini (the cucumber next to it is a normal sized Lebanese variety)
Another collection of more normal sized zucchinis.
Two red capsicums
A handful of green and purple beans
Another three long eggplants
Four pumpkins (see the difference between them? Well they were all grown from seeds from the same packet, not sure what happened there. I wonder what they will be like inside?)
The last bowl of roma tomatoes (plus a couple of cherry toms as well)
There were also some herbs, parsley, basil, thyme.
In all of this we’re also in the midst of house opens and a constant state of cleaning and tidying so strangers can walk through and hopefully think what a great home it is and maybe buy it from us soon. I’m finding it quite stressful, of course that could also be because we still don’t know where we’re going to move to.
That’s it from me. I’ll try blogging a bit more consistently from now, I do enjoy it and I especially love hearing from you and reading others’ blogs and I’m sure there will be plenty of inspiration at Daphne’s this week.
