Our garden is full of vegetables and herbs. We’ve had fresh lettuce, carrots, radishes, potatoes, broccoli, kohlrabi, silverbeet, cabbage, peas and beet root since we arrived. Most were ready for harvest upon our arrival. Sweet corn is growing but I have to prop it up every day after the wind blows it down. I go out every afternoon with a large tub and figure out what’s ripe and what we can have for dinner. Then I pick and clean a lot of the food right out at the garden. There’s always a lot of dirt and a few earwigs. If something has been eaten too much by something else, I toss it. There are the occasional land slugs with pretty shells but bad intentions. Crunch they go. Now it’s our turn to plant the rest of the garden for ourselves and the next caretakers. So far I have planted pumpkin, watermelon, dwarf beans, silver beet, beet root, radishes, rocket, turnips, parsnips, carrots, corn, chinese cabbage, capsicum, tomatoes, leeks, cauliflower and broccoli.
