Not only are the seedlings looking spunky but our friendly neighbour Don, nicknamed 'tamata' gave us 15 tomato plants. These beaut's were planted in the glass house today now that the risk of any hard frosts are gone. His gardening expertise, loyal kiwi accent and willingness to help us out is awesome. After our cup of Tea he showed us round his vege turf. His perfect edges and straighly sown lines were something. but his lemon tree was something else. My casual hints of a few lemons being tossed our way for Si's mexican night seemed to go amiss with him. With only Don and Marcy to pluck off the tree there'd surely enough citric acid on those branches to break through Gringotts vault. Never have I seen such a babin' lemon tree. Despite the absence of lemons in our kitchen Don kindly gave us a bunch of his rainbow beet. Looks like silverbeet coloured in with highlighters. mega cool.
Not sure what recipe these will feature in but I will be sure to keep you updated.
Sorry for my recent absence, but the springtime flu has caught me so feeding the chickens has been my most exciting contact with the backyard world, but hold tight because there will be more recipes to come.
