Garden pickings

Can I introduce a friend, Tara, who has just started a blog about her self sufficiency efforts on 2 acres in the north island of NZ. She does great and I am sure she would like to meet other likeminded people in the WordPress community.

Garden pickings

Just a quick ramble through the garden, and I discovered a bounty of fresh vegetable matter for my dinner and dessert!

Nothing beats food straight out of your garden!

  1. Love eating from the garden. We had the last of the broccoli stems, a cauli, some eggs, the last beetroot and a leek turned into an omelette and cheesy broccoli and cauli on the side. Your dinner looks delicious!


    • Mmm mmm, except it’s not mine πŸ™‚ I reblogged this from a friend with a link to her page but it’s gone differently than it used to?!

      Your dinner sounds just like what we often have, doesn’t get much cheaper ay?


      • Well, it would have been quiche save that one of my kids took my fowlers vacola opener to the dozen eggs I had in the bowl on the bench and stabbed them. There were 5 undamaged but they were left there to sort through as some had been sitting under a hen who had sat for 3 days then desserted so we had to make sure we used the remaining eggs carefully too. 2 usable eggs from a dozen! 😦
        Yes, after I commented I realised it wasn’t yours. I’m now following her blog so thanks for the link. πŸ˜€


  2. Ditto, I will be following as well :). The only thing I could eat from our garden at the moment is a bit of garlic and a whole lot of thistles…not even artichokey thistles…just common or garden varieties ;). Oh well, at least now we CAN plant out veggies…we finally got the veggie garden enclosed!!! :). Cheers for the share πŸ™‚


    • That’s great Fran:)

      We’re doing alright from the garden thank goodness but full on harvests will be nice again, still not quite enough for us.
      That looks as though it would’ve been a mammoth task, don’t envy you that one!!


      • I am still sore but everything I ate for the week was completely negated by all of the hard work…(note to self “You should have eaten cake!” πŸ˜‰ ).
