Harvesting our Garden
Posted on 24 December 2010
We often forget to take photos to share what we harvest from our organic garden with you, but below are a few from our recent harvests.
We’ve been making delicious fresh pesto from all our herbs – rosemary, sage, chives, parsley, thyme, oregano, basil, mint… Baba ghanoush and moussaka from our aubergine… tomato sauce from home grown tomatoes, capsicum, aubergine and spinach… croutons from our fresh homemade bread, brushed in olive oil and fresh herbs from the garden… our green beans, courgettes and Asian greens go in anything from salads to stir fries to lentil soups… our lettuces, spinach and shallots make beautiful crispy salads… and many, many more dishes…
We shouldn’t forget all those lemons, mandarins, grapefruit, oranges and acerola cherries we’ve been able to benefit from thanks to the landlord’s love of productive trees. (see our post on ‘Urban Permaculture in Practice‘ where there is a base plan showing all the trees on our property).
And of course, we’ve also been harvesting eggs from our house mates’ chickens daily!
