Well we are in Dunedin and I have inherited a glass house, so that is good news. We have parsnips and carrots in the garden with peppers and tomatoes in the glass house. The tomatoes were looking rather sad, but I might get something off them.
Last Tuesday before leaving Hastings I picked a large basket of veges, didn't manage to pick all the tomatoes which was a shame, but I guess I had to leave something for the tenant. We are still eating our way through the basket and the tomatoes are rippening up well that I picked from green.
Yesterday I planted out celery, beetroot, bright lights silverbeet, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and lettuce. I put a couple of silverbeet and broccoli in the glass house to see how they get on. I have started off beetroot, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, brussel sprouts, peas, lettuce, carrots, mesclun mix seeds and left them in the glass house. It will be interesting to see how they get on in there. I made my first loaf of Dunedin Bread Monday, not bad considering the bug as been traveling with us for 3 days and I couldn't feed it until I could find the flour which took another 2 days. Still unpacking and finding things, but nothing has been broken, so I am impressed.
We will be off to the farmers market on Saturday, looking forward to having a look around and need to find an organic shop, the phone book has been a good source of information.
Before leaving Hasting I brought a really nice cane basket from Cornucopia in Hastings, they are worth looking at if you are wanting one.
