Garden Bloggers Harvest Day in May

Harvest Day in May 2012

Welcome to our fifth Garden Bloggers Harvest Day this 5th day of May 2012. Our Two Gardens are in a change of season mode and being faithful to nature, we are preparing our gardens for the new growth ahead. So the sowing and the harvesting of seeds are the topic of discussion. We can officially declare summer over and the Autumn short!

My Veggie Harvest for April

New colour in the veggie patch

My ornamental plants are starting to shed their Summer beauty for more sedate Autumnal finery, but no so the vegetables and herbs. My little veggie planters are brimming with produce waiting to be pickled and we can’t eat it as fast as its growing. I added a few new things this month. I like to plant and grow herbs that are not always available at the local supermarket. A new one is [...]

Belated Harvest for Harvest Day

Veggie Harvest in March

At last some red! It was worth being a few days late for the monthly Garden Bloggers Harvest Day so that I could add a pop of colour to my Harvest Day post! I get really envious when I see all the harvests that are full of colour and all I seem to produce is green … not that I don’t like green. In fact we do – a lot! But every [...]

My February Harvest

Harvest Day

My February harvest is meagre … I’m almost embarrassed to show how little there is to harvest this month, but in the spirit of joining in with Garden Bloggers Harvest Day in February, here is what I’ve managed to “harvest” in the last month. The two mint plants seem to be on a mission to take over my veggie planters. It’s a good thing that I have someone to take all the [...]

Barbie is a serious “vegetable gardener”. Really, she has all sorts growing … from cabbages to potatoes, fruit trees (peaches, figs, apples [...]
