While the rest of the world is celebrating the bounty of beautiful colours which the season of spring brings, in our veggie garden, crop-rotation is in full blast: out go the summer crops, like cucumbers, eggplants, pumpkins, melons, beans and some salad and tropical greens as well as the heat-releasing chilies. And in comes the cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas and all the winter-loving salad greens.
This Emperor mandarin has been infested with fruit flies. The photo is a little blurry, I'm only using an iPad, the pix are a little over exposed.
Rockmelon still a while to go before it's ready.
Cherry tomatoes - the last plant still standing.
This bird's eye chilli or bullet is very productive, it produces more chilies than I can pickle and give away.
This is sweet potato vine. May not be known to a lot of people that the leaves of the sweet potato are edible rich in vitamins and minerals. We grow this variety solely for its leaves and not for tubers.
This is kangkong AKA water spinach, great for stir-fry, steamed, in soups or as an accompaniment to any salad greens.
Some overgrown mescaline salad mix.
Bert loves watching the veggie garden day and night. He is a perfect "guard gnome"; scaring away unwanted guests!
Please join me on the verandah for a relaxing Saturday afternoon tea.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe weekend!
