A Veggie Harvest

Vegetable HarvestWe’ve had a shocking week with all sorts of things going wrong at work and its been extremely stressful. I’ve had barely a moment to look at my garden and even less time to go and do any shopping. I felt a bit like “Old Mother Hubbard” last night when I went to the cupboard and all we had was a single tin of tuna!

Nothing to eat, what to do? We thought about ordering in a pizza when I had a brain wave – what about a Tuna Salad? We have a veggie planter full of all sorts of greens growing and begging to be harvested. So dinner was all freshly picked from our garden and added to a tin of tuna! And it was YUMMY!! A mixture of cos and butter lettuce, a tomato, basil, some chopped chives, a pepper and a bit of parsley sprinkled on top! Very rewarding and cheap too.

I’m inspired now to start planting more edibles! What a pleasure to take a basket and go and “pick your dinner”, fresh from the garden.

Happy Gardening!

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

Hey Chris! Wow! That is fantastic! I totally know the feeling. In a few seconds my basket is full of fresh, healthy and yummy food! I still want to make a coleslaw with my gorgeous cabbage! Will let you have a pic when it’s made!

I know the feeling, Christine – it blows me away each and every time I can walk outside and pick what we need for dinner. A completely addictive feeling LOL

I agree! What I can’t get over the most is just how good the fresh produce from my garden smells! Do the shops remove the smell of parsley and basil? Its amazing to me just how wonderful it all looks, smells and tastes!!
