Our Garden early April

A Beautiful day for gardening.
 
 
 
 
We started by pulling out the corn patch. We had over 40 stalks that produced the most amazing sweet delicious corn.  next year we hope to plant a few waves to keep the eating season going a little longer.  Quite a lot of weeding was needed and we played with the herb garden to get it looking a little more like a herb bed and not a bed of pineapple sage.


A days harvest, carrots, parsnips, tomoates, colored beets, herbs, zucchini, eggplant, capsicum, chillies and cucumber.  We have been harvesting lots of parsnips for Royce to take to the resturant he is working at - Silo's at Jaspers brush.

 
 
I have been playing around with the macro on my camera again, which incidently eventualy turned up....
 
These photos were taken in the first few days of April, just took me nearly two weeks to get around to posting them.....

Stay tuned as i have more photos to put up very shortly.....

Oh gosh look at all your beautiful produce. I haven't even put my potatoes in yet. It was so wet all winter and then we have had the coldest March since 1962. Not much gardening being done here at the moment.
