Garden Bloggers Harvest Day April

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.

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!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Lovely to see both herbs and vegetables. I’ve missed April but I’ll contribute next month

The only thing I’m harvesting right now in the northern hemisphere is Romaine lettuce, just enough to put on our sandwiches. There is hope for early tomatoes and eggplants, so I showed the progress of the plants. Fun meme, just out of season for us.

Yum! Everything looks so tasty! I can’t imagine being able to grow Guavas! I’ll link in next month. If our freezes during the next few days don’t kill off all the early growth, I should have some harvest goodies to share. Great meme!

Your harvest makes me look forward to mine now that we are in spring and planting can begin. Your herbs looks so lush and full. I just added some annual herbs, such as basil and pineapple sage, to the herb garden. I also added some chocolate mint. How I would love to have a lemon tree in my garden…too cold.

Looks like you have a lot going on. Especially like seeing the lemons and guava! I may not have any harvest next month, but this month I’ve joined in with the last of my fall planted garden! Thanks for hosting.
