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 month I show Basil and Mint, Basil and Mint. Basil and Mint! And occasionally some Lettuce, Coriander, mint and Basil!

Look how great it is I have actual red tomatoes at last! Edible, lovely tomatoes and we have also picked our first limes off the lime tree. I have wonderful garlic chives, coriander and plenty of huge Habanero and Jalapeño chilis.

It’s amazing to me the difference a few days can make in the veggie planters. From a meagre harvest on Sunday to a good harvest on Thursday. But I have so much Basil that I’m about to go and make Basil Pesto!

Happy Gardening
