The lavender is flowering …

And so is the rocket.  We’ve been eating a lot of rocket for about the last month, but it is rapidly going to seed at the moment.

There are lots of little pods on the broad beans.  I clipped off the tops of the plants last week, and we ate them.

It’s our first year growing zucchini … the suspense is killing me.

This ruby chard is still quite small, but so beautiful!  Hope it tastes as good as it looks.

This kohlrabi went into our dinner on Saturday night, and it was delicious!

We’re also getting some good harvests of frilly lettuce, and have a heap of parsley plants looking nice & healthy.

And up in the greenhouse the tomatoes are flowering.  We have two types in the greenhouse  (inca and brandywine), and one outdoors (gardener’s delight).

Also down in the vege garden is a huge oregano that’s about to flower, and lots of flourishing beetroots, leeks, celeriac, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cos lettuce, coriander, potatoes, and a nasturtium that wants to take over the world!
