What's growing in my garden at the moment:
Sugar Snap Peas
Carrots [orange and purple]

The last week has seen the first harvests from my vegetable garden. I really love having quick growing crops to satisfy my family's hunger for fresh food.
|Third harvest from my garden-radishes, baby spinach and Pak Choy...a present for my grandparents.|
So far I've harvested:
Young Pak Choy
Baby spinach leaves
Young beetroot leaves
When I thin crops like Pak Choy and beetroot, I use the thinned out seedlings in our dinners-they may be small but still taste just as good. Young beetroot leaves have a lovely flavour similar to silverbeet when steamed lightly and add a lovely dash of colour with their deep red stems.

I'm still having issues with my dogs getting into my garden to toilet-they slip through the sections I haven't fenced properly. It's getting irritating having to remove dog poo and uncover/replant the seedlings they destroy. A trip over the weekend to Bunnings got me supplies to finish off fencing the garden from my furry little "helpers". I still haven't finished the new fence, but it's taking shape and should be done by tomorrow.
