Summer was tough on the vegie garden. Only the corn did well and we had some beautiful sweet plump cobs from them. The rest hated all the rain. The tomatoes turned up their toes twice, the capsicums sulked, the cucumbers became powdery mildew city and the climbing beans refused to flower and the grass hoppers ate them.So I am trying again.
Some Greenfeast peas (same as my Dad grew). They should give us a good yield before the warm weather arrives. The beans should go on producing until it gets too hot or wet later this year. Broccoli - again a cool weather planting and tomatoes that should go right through until autumn.
Mmmmmmmm fresh peas with mint, beans with garlic and lemon butter, steamed broccoli and plump cherry tomatoes. Hope the vegie patch gods are good to me this year.
