Some highlights from my September garden…
:: The nectarine and (I think it’s a) quince blossoms have graced us with their presence and then left to be replaced by leaves and teeny tiny fruit. The birds have enjoyed them as much as us.
:: We are eating the sweetest peas
:: The Tuscan Kale (a.k.a. cavolo nero) is growing at a mighty pace
:: The blueberries have fully formed leaves now and I keep having to force myself to nip off all of their flowers. Just one more year and I can let the flowers set into fruit.
:: At first the broad beans flowered and none seemed to set. Then the weather warmed up and dried out a little and the bees starting coming.
:: We can’t keep up with growth of the multi-coloured silverbeet/chard…anyone for spanakopita?
:: And the pièce de résistance, we are eating my very first ever harvest of green sprouting broccoli. Oh it is sooo yummy!
