* Capsicum
* Broad Beans
* Borlotti Beans
* Canolini Beans
* Italian Flat Beans
* Slenderette Beans
* Peas (that sprouted everywhere from the pea straw)
* Scarlet Runner Beans
* Snow Peas
* Brocolli (two varieties)
* Beetroot (two varieties)
* Corn
* Zucchini
* Lemon Cucumber
* Spinach
* Silverbeet
* Rocket
* Borage (started taking over the garden)
* Basil
* Italian Parsley
* Thyme
* Rosemary
* Oregano
* Tarragon

Also was the first year for all my fruit trees/shrubs. These include:

* Apples
* Apricots
* Cherries
* Plums
* Peaches
* Pears
* Quinces
* Meyer Lemons
* Mandarin
* Seville Orange
* Mullberries
* Olives
* Hazelnuts
* Almonds

* Strawberries (of course)

Place into a deep pan with a little stock (vegetable or beef)

Add chopped thyme, parsley and dill… Continue
