I’m still struggling and scraping to get a harvest post in and obviously it’s not yet an every week thing, but I do have a few things to add today. Not all are from my own plants, but they are all home grown.
Firstly is a bowl full of citrus. Most of the lemons are from my Grandfather, with two being given to me by my neighbour along with a jar of home made strawberry jam (yum!) in exchange for Mr Good fixing our shared side fence. The oranges came from Mum and Dad’s tree. I’m planning another batch of lemon/orange cordial as my store cupboard is nearly empty.
Secondly is some herbs. Parsley from both my garden and Mum’s (she could supply the whole state I think!). Mint from my own garden which I discovered when I was weeding – how wonderful! It’s growing in a garden bed I’ve been clearing to plant some fuschias. Obviously it will probably take over if left there so as soon as I get a chance I will dig it up and put it in a pot, but it looks very healthy and I’m super excited to have fresh mint to pick at will. And something I always forget, bay leaves from my lovely little potted bay tree.
Lastly I picked a few more spring onions. I’m using more than I have growing so I’ve planted more seeds and they’ve starting coming up too. I have had to move to pot to the top of the BBQ to stop Miss Two pulling them all out every other day though, so I hope they survive.
