Earlier this week I collected this garden bounty….grown in my own backyard!
Most of it from my raised garden bed.
Here is a pic of the bounty…and yes…hasn’t the grass dried off.
Baby beets, dwarf beans, spinach, coriander, parsley, my first courgette, chives and vietnamese mint. It all went together to make a yummy soup.
More baby beets are ready for harvest, and today I cropped another, larger zhuccini. Just as I was returning from taking out the compost this morning..a rather urgent and close-sounding tweet was heard. On the back deck was sitting a beautiful tourquoise budgie!!!
It didn’t take long before he or she was eating grass seed from a stem. I tried to catch it but to no avail…off it flew into the neighbour’s garden. I do hope it returns,….
