First harvest


We’ve been eating from the lettuces and arugula for some time now, but getting the first carrots out of the ground was something quite special. Jonathan and I couldn’t resist taking a few bites before I got my camera. The peas were brilliant too, unlike everything I’ve ever tasted. And I think the zucchini is probably going to be next – the plants have started flowering this week.


Spring time in the vegetable garden

A few months ago I started a vegetable garden in our back yard. It took quite a bit of work, but it was a lot of fun and it’s incredibly satisfying to see the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor grow.

I originally planted some lettuces, broccoli, cress, carrots, rocket, and parsley, and later added some zucchini and green peas. Most of these have grown pretty nicely:

I’ve now started working on some new garden beds, where I’ll plant summer veggies like tomatoes and peppers.
