The Country Boy finished clearing out the vegetable garden from our summer vegetable haul. My goodness – never in my dreams did I imagine that we would grow as much as we did. We are still enjoying the produce I managed to preserve.
He has been raising the seedlings for his winter vegetables in the green house (which was already here) and over the last few weeks he has been planting them out in among the craziness of shearing.
Once again I think he has over estimated our vegetable needs, but it will be exciting to harvest them all. So here is what our winter vegetable garden looks like.
We have a few rows of beetroot. I love it roasted.
Here is our first (tiny) broccoli. The girls are broccoli fans, so we will enjoy this (though there is only 2 bites in this one).
Country Boy has grown garlic for several years now. It is really hard to find Australian grown garlic in shops. Country Boy and I both prefer to avoid buying foreign grown fruit and vegetables (think of all the food miles!!) so garlic is a necessity in the garden.
The silver beet, carrots, and spinach.
Here are our cauliflowers.
Our onions are also growing well.
We also have pak choy, brussel sprouts (I like these with cheese sauce, and bacon), broad beans, as well as parsley and chives. We are definitely going to be busy when harvest gets going again.
I took this photo on the weekend. All the oak trees in our tree line have turned golden brown this week. The sunlight looked so beautiful, don’t you think?
