Are you getting fresh with me?

This is just one of the many reasons why I love gardening:

- delicious, fresh produce, grown just a couple of metres from our door. We make compost with our veggie scraps, so the cycle of goodness goes round and round and our worms get nice and fat.

This week we're harvesting zucchini and cucumbers (many more than we can eat), tomatoes, beans, rocket (arugula),  lemon verbena and basil, and our sweetcorn looks as though it will be ready for picking next week. I'm keeping my eye out for some warrigal greens and sorrel seedlings and wondering if we'll have room for all the pumpkin plants that have self-seeded in our veggie beds...






~ all this in a little urban garden that's only 8 weeks old!

Love it!

Your garden is amazing, but I'm especially struck by that Ganesha statue - wow!

Your gardening photos are so beautiful and I love your sweet doggie's photo as well. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting, and I'll be a regular reader of yours as well. Hugs across the miles from Colorado in the U.S.!

What a beautiful garden :) I've added you to my blogroll even though posts from people with an opposite summer always make me so jealous!
