Growing local

September 2017 Harvest:

-650g Black russian and black cherry tomatoes

- 10 passionfruit

- 150g broadbeans

Apart from the glorious black tomatoes (my fave), harvest looks thin but actually I was not home most of September. So I thought I'd include some pics from my travels too :)

KEW GARDENS, LONDON, UK

Kew Gardens was a wonderful visit (great giftshop too...!). Beautiful spring blooms for the first ever Botanical Gardens in the world. The Palmhouse was right at home with almost half seeming to come from our corner of the world!

The kitchen garden was inspiring too - typical walled garden style... makes you dream :)

FRANCE

Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris, France. I love these parterres...

You would not find these often in Australia!!

Random wall/vertical garden in Paris

Random verge patch in the middle of the cement footpath in the centre of Paris!

TUSCANY, ITALY

We stayed on an organic farm in Tuscany.... highly recommend!! Diacceroni Argiturismo Best hosts, every thing you need. Their primary production is wheat, olive oil, wine and then they do jams & conserves. Delicious!

And one last one to really make you dream...:

The sunset over San Gimignano...with the olive groves :)

Wow. A friend and I and contemplating a trip overseas next year. Yet to pick a country though lol. The organic farm looks interesting. Perhaps there are kitchen garden tours of some sort out there, that would be my main interest.

Thanks for sharing Sophie.  You got me thinking about more hair brained schemes I can try.
