Garden update – June ’10

Thing are going well with our Edible Garden. The sun is producing a plethora of fine green plants along with small hints of vibrant colour. Tonight we tried the Borage for the first time. It’s such a beautiful flower, almost like a simplified Passion Flower; taste wise the flowers it taste like mild cucumber.It is an exciting time in the garden the bees and other insects are busy and our hard work slowly beginning to pay off.

For a change not many words, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Peas beginning to take over the onions

Peas – I don’t know why but I love how pea plants can beautifully twist around everything & anything they can find.

Broadbean flowers

Tomato flower

Beetroot. Our Golden Beetroots are not doing as well as the red beets.

  3. Absolutely beautiful photos! Looking very juicy and gorgeous!

  4. All looking fabulous, some great eating ahead! We are overrun with lettuce at the moment, but enough variety to keep salad leaves interesting. Beautiful shots, what camera are you using?
