Been out first thing this morning and Comfrey tea'd all my tomatoes. Tied the larger ones again, as they're fruiting. Planted out a large lemon scented geranium. Made some rose petal jam.

My darn spinch has gone to seed and is still very small so think i will stick with the perpetual spinich as that does really well around here.

Planted out more tomatoes last night when it was cooler...Russian Reds, Beefsteaks and Bloody Butchers. the beans I sowed last week are popping up, as are the beets, radishes, corn and more lettuces. I have tomatoes forming on my early planteds (Angela and Black from Tula) and the cucumbers and squashes are going nuts after this hot spell we've had.

mmmm, brocolli from our garden tonight - purple too! and broadbeans, skins off and stirfried with capsicum and asparagus and courgette (not from our garden) with wilted spinach (yes, from the garden) on top. Very nice with a little feta... and plenty of fresh herbs (from the garden!). Yum!! I love this time of year, and this weather.

Yum...your broccolli and spinach dishes sound just delicious! I need to pull some of my tomatoes out of the freezer and make a good sauce to pour over pasta. It's definitely a comfort food for chilly late fall days.

lol

We eat ours too fast for the poor wee plant to go to seed - just had another wonderful feast of Purple Sprouting Broccolli - combined with home made hollendaise sauce - Simply Delish!!!
Also made up a huge pot of creamed spinach, so that will do us for two nights at least - or be the base of a soup for tomorrow if it rains (like they have promised!!!!) and we need comfort food...

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm Life is Good!!!

Your sprouting broccoli has gne to seed? Everything we dont want to do to seed does very quickly but the sprouting broccolli has refused to do this at all.

thanks I am blown away by the support people have given me since registering. We are trying our best. We could do a lot more if we actually had soil here.

my sprouting broccoli has done its dash Yvonne, as soon as it gets warm it goes, I planted in autumn so it has overwintered. Awoke this morning to find craters all through my vege patch...neighbours cows, looks a mess! probably I will fill the holes with sand and hopefully whatever is still there will continue growing, lots of seedlings messed up yarrrrgh!

Hmmmmm now exams are finish I can get into the garden, oh there are a lot of weeds. Sprouting broccoli does it go to seed quite quickly at this time of year?
