With glorious sunshine on Sunday we tackled our jungle … And some bits of it are nearly now back to resembling a garden (most critically for the neighbourhood our nature strip).
And here’s the winter produce we found out the back in the wine barrel veggie patch (remember I got it from the neighbours up the road??)
In saying this of course I am very glad we’re not Barbara Kingsolver* – enough potatoes and spring onions for one potato salad and one other potato side isn’t anything near self-sufficiency is it?
But the fact is, the produce itself was self-sufficient. Growing despite any love or attention from us.
So my pride is a bit like the pride you have when your kids do something without any help and ALL BY THEMSELVES!
