Its sooo green!

Our vegie garden has been growing and growing. These photos were taken a little while ago now and the corn has grown really tall and has just produced its first corn cobs. The last few years we have been in drought and lately it has been raining so much everything is growing so quickly which is such a change. The herbs have been getting a really good workout, lots going into our scrambled egg breakfasts and salads. I am planning to plant a few more herbs soon, hopefully some fennel, dill, sage, rosemary…..I can smell it now:)

How does your garden grow?

Mary, Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow? With silver bells and cockle shells and three little maids in a row….. I think that is how that rhyme goes:) My vegetable garden astounds me every time I tend it and peer at the growing seedlings. There is something very special about getting your hands dirty and turning over soil and readying it for planting. Then planting seeds and watching them fight through the soil towards the sunlight. It amazes me how with love and tender care, water and sunlight a garden does grow. We are much like this garden bed of mine, the loving tender of the Master Gardener makes our life bloom and produce much bounty to nourish others.
