Abundance of late:
I do love my slightly-twee ‘picking’ basket, which I op-shopped last year.
So much goodness coming out of the garden right now…
But on the downside – there’s been a bit of a sneaky drought on here, lately. I say ‘sneaky’ because it hasn’t made the news but it is definitely very dry lately. It hasn’t rained properly for weeks….so I’m behind in winter-planting because I want some rain to come before I entrust vulnerable seedlings and seeds to the ground. (I do water the vegetable garden, but it’s hard to keep it damp enough to support new life.)
So while it’s all full-baskets now, soon there is going to be slim pickings, while the baby leeks and spinach and silverbeet and fennel and parsley take root.
Anyway – gather ye rosebuds, and all that…. or in my case, tomatoes.
