Out in the garden

As you can see the garden is doing really well even if the weather is up and down like a brides night gown. Hot one day cold the next poor things don't know if their Arthur or Martha.  I'll be able to pick silverbeet leaves this week for a nice green salad. 
We pulled out the remaining beetroots the other day so we have planted bush cucumbers in their place. As the hot weather really hasn't started yet I'm taking the chance that it's not too late and I'm sure with summer being late it will last longer, I hope, and I'll get a crop 
And here we pulled up the first planting of onions which I made into an onion pie. And replaced them with banana chillies. They are so yum grilled with the skin off. Or in salads raw or even stuffed and cooked in the oven. Yum can't wait 
And this is today's haule. We will eat some of these beans tonight and the rest I'll freeze for another meal. The carrots are going to be scrubbed and Cooked in the oven with potatoes and pumpkin to have with the beans and roast chicken. 
And a pic of my stripped rose. It's so beautiful I had to share it with you my bloggy friends 
How is your garden growing 
See ya xx

  1. It is so nice to see things growing. Is that flowers on the Tomatoes too? Yum! I have never heard of onion pie. Will have to look that up for hubby. I can not eat the onions myself. But your garden looks great.

    1. I'm not sure Sharon. Just a variety of them. They were given to me by a friend who works in the nursery industry. So I was just grateful for them
