First fruits

For some time we’ve been making use of parsley from our kitchen garden, and in the last week we’ve been having lettuce and tomato as well.

The garden seems to be getting a bit overcrowded, so we’re planning to build another raised bed to add to it.

The tomato plants have grown big, and in the back on the right are the potatoes, which have spilled over and reached thr ground. We hope they have put as much energy into producing spuds as they seem to have put into producing stems and leaves!

  1. We’ve now eaten the tomatoes, one of them in a salad with some lettuce, also from the garden. One advantage of growing your own is that the tomatoes ripen on the bush, and so have much more flavour than ones that are picked before they are ripe, and ripen in transit to shops.
