in the garden ::
Posted by vicki brown on
this week we are starting to reap the rewards of all our work.
There is lots to harvest (even if mostly they are small harvests of small fruits/vegetables).
This week we've enjoyed ::
- spring onions
- salad leaves
Milo planted the carrots just like Miffy in one of his favourite books. They are only meant to be little round baby ones (I thought quick growing best for a little boy). It's only been 9 weeks since we sowed the seeds and today he harvested lots of little round sweet smelling carrots to enjoy for our lunch.
The raspberries are really starting to fruit now, which is amazing, it feels like a true true treat to eat those beautiful little jewels. However I'm a little disappointed that both the strawberries and the blueberries seem to have stopped flowering, I hoping that the strawberries will have another little flourish later in the year. The blueberries are new this year so I guess I should be pleased to have any fruit and hopefully next year will be better.
