Welcome to our fourth Garden Bloggers Harvest Day this 5th day of April 2012. Our Two Gardens have not been very productive now that the season has ended and the time for winter sowing is upon us!  But we still love sharing with you the joys of our gardens on this day each month! Also, having a peek into your veggie patches will continuously inspire and delight! There is so much to grow and enjoy!  What’s growing in your edible garden?

Let’s see what can be harvested from Barbies Garden this month

Well, the month of April, for me, is a time for clearing the old and making way for the new winter sowing of seeds. All I can share with you this month is my bountiful herbs that are still growing and adding flavour and colour to all my dishes. There were a few veggies I could show, but not very exciting.

A few small carrots were found!

Spring onions are still growing

Oh look-celery has grown back!

Chives are so nice on baked potatoes

Chillis still in production

Swiss Chard giving me so much

My lovely and well-used herbs…



Flat leafed Parsley-my favourite

Sweet Basil now in flower

Not quite ripe yet …

My lemon tree full of potential

My guavas will be bountiful this winter

I know it is not a bountiful harvest, but I guess every garden needs time to renew itself. I’ll also look for some yummy recipes for next month’s post!
