After 9 long, hot, dry weeks it's finally raining up here!
After the long, dry summer
I didn't think I'd have much of an entry
in the "Harvest Basket" competition
at Garden Club this year
but when I went out to scrounge in the garden I managed the entry in above...
This was last years.
A lot of room was taken up with a pumpkin
grown on the wicking bed
but I found Silverbeet, NZ Spinach, Basil, Bronze Fennel,
Chives, Parsely, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumber, Zucchini,
Capsicum and Chillis, Eggplants, Red Onions,
Grapes, 2 kinds of Plums, 2 kinds of Apples,
2 kinds of Almonds
and of course some eggs from the girls.
...I won first place again.
