After months of waiting to pick some of our produce we have finally started to reap the rewards of growing our own veges. There have been a few challenges along the way; the snails loved our new seedlings, the parrots will try anything and weevils are munching the leaves on our fruit trees.
But, we are now eating our carrots and potatoes and today we made our first batch of beetroot relish.
We are eagerly awaiting the snow peas, onions, garlic, blueberries, raspberries and tomatoes to grow and ripen. The herb garden is also starting to show signs of growth as the days get a little warmer.
New shoots have started to appear on our small shrubs and some are even displaying their first flowers.
We have planted lawn runners and can’t wait for them to cover the ground – it will help keep the sand under control and give a nice contrast to the garden.
