Growing local

*Apologies for late posting*

August 2017 Harvest:

15 passionfruit

200g eggplant

4 carrots

70g cherry tomatoes

3 normal red tomatoes

1 black russian tomato (my fave)

1 massive choko

4 tatsoi heads

3 broadbeans

2 lettuce

1 cumquat

Has been a very busy month, wrapping up work before going away so have not been as active in the garden despite the nice weather (such a shame!!). Just realised it's my 1 year monthly garden blog anniversary! For a quick overview of the journey, you can visit :) 

Spot the odd one out :)

Peach blossum!

One of my best breads yet!

Your bread is looking fabulous Sophie. I have been spending my time preserving, making Fruit Syrups a lot lately and Cheese-making so haven't had much time for the Sour Dough but when I put the Cheese-making equipment away I will be asking you for hints on the best loaf.
