Down in the veggie patch, things are really booming! I have a secret weapon that I will tell you about. But first let me show you what has been growing. Potatoes! I have grown my first lot of kipfler potatoes! They are only tiny but I don't care! I grew them! I got so excited that I may have picked them a week or 2 too early. There is still some more buried under the soil.
We now have soo much broccoli that I have to start researching & coming up with new recipes for it.
Every afternoon, Georgia & I disappear to the veggie patch to eat snap peas straight from the vine. They are so sweet & crunchy
There are tiny little green tomatoes everywhere! Everywhere! I can't wait to be able to go down & pick a few for a salad. You might even find me sitting by the garden eating one just like you would an apple. I LOVE tomatoes!!
The celery is looking so healthy. It is nearly ready to start picking a stalk at a time to have with some hummus. It is also going to be great to throw into some veggie soup.
We have strawberries!!! They are not the best looking, but I think that is because they are from last years runners. But none the less, we have strawberries!
Zucchini, lettuce, carrots, onions, sweet potato & cauliflower, oh my! Now, I have a little secret for you. I have not used anything chemical on these veggie patches. I have only used water & one other secret weapon...... EPSOM SALTS!!!!!! Just one tablespoon on the dirt around each plant, once a fortnight before I give them a good watering. That is it!! I am serious! I have never grown healthier, disease free, pest resistant veggies before.
The herbs are even thriving! I will never use another "miracle" product on my veggie patch ever again! Because they are so healthy, they taste amazing. Everything is either crunchy, juicy or both.
