Blooming marvellous

Nearly there
Originally uploaded by Mistress B
Warm from the sun, plump and bursting with tangy, acid sweetness ... is there anything better than a home-grown tomato? I think not, hence all the sweat, toil and money than has been ploughed into our vegetable patch.
But it has all been worthwhile. We have an enormous crop of (green) tomatoes just waiting for another week or two of sunshine to turn red and flood us with more tomatoes than we know what to do with. Plus the rhubarb is going mental, although also yet to turn red, the zucchini (that's courgette for you Poms) has lots of flowers but no fruit just yet, the leeks are growing tall and the herb garden on the balcony is lush with basil, parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary, marjoram and even lemongrass.
I love having a garden again!

oh man! jealous. I have a tiny little balcony, with just some eggplant, chili and basil seeds germianting inside of the windowsill. But have been planting flowers in the street outside the front door to compensate! Enjoy your toms! bec.
