The spring sun is out and the gardener is happy on this, our ninth Garden Bloggers Harvest Day the 5th day of September 2012 in the southern hemisphere, and the gardeners of Two Gardens are celebrating the spring – finally. The days are getting longer and warmer and we can feel the season is changing. Barbie loves the bold yellow of the canola fields surrounding her village and the bright red of the little Bishop bird. Spring is here!!

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

I have not had much opportunity to plant, but what I do have is a wonderous assortment of salad greens. The local church has a Spring Market this friday and everyone is getting ready for it with local produce and baked breads and cakes! Gonna be fun! I cannot boast with my veggie patch yet, but let me show you what I can harvest so far ….

Broad Beans – they are so sweet and tender

This will be a nice harvest soon

Iceberg lettuce

Tatsoi – spinach mustard

Mizuna, Arugula and Bok Choy

Swiss Chard with red stems-pretty!

Lots of leafy salad lettuces (Irises in centre)

Pepadew chilli in the lettuce patch

Salad needs a splash of lemon!

What a colourful salad harvest!
