News from the back yard...

After two weeks of rain we finally have some sunshine and the veggies are coming along a treat (most of them, ahem, don't mention the basil)...

Mint is in abundance!


Rhubarb is doing well.


The courgettes are flowering and starting to grow their fruit.


Lots of carrots under there somewhere.


The thyme and coriander in the lettuce bed are good to eat.


We planted this jasmine on the ugly wall behind the veggie beds and it has come into flower.


Aah! Today we spotted this tiny bub of an eggplant. The first one we have ever managed to grow!


And the start of what will hopefully be a good tomato crop, they'll need lots more sunshine.


Spring onions.


Lots and lots of lettuces, bought as seedlings from the produce stall at the school fete.


And here is someone doing a little watering in the new sage bed!

that really is very impressive, everyone should take note and start their own!

I am looking out the window at another 2" of snow falling (after the 10" on Friday) here in Michigan. We've had an early start to winter this year...what a treat to come to your blog and see all the "green"! Nice to know some where in the world there are warm temps and other colours besides white and black! Enjoy your veggies!
