We have a vege patch!Currently we are growing a variety of herbs, including sage, coriander, oregano, thyme, basil and mint, as well as okra, rocket, spinach, chillies and tomatoes.The first of the tomatoes are just ripening and there are still plenty more to come, judging from the flowers on the plant.
My chilli plant, having survived years in apartment living has just blossomed in the vege patch, producing bigger and much more chillis than ever before. It's amazing what plenty of fresh air and room to grow can do.I'll admit, the reason I wanted to grow a vege patch this year as part of my 12 things is because I have been awestruck by cooking shows where the chef so nonchalantly goes out to the kitchen garden and picks out a few things to cook with.
I've always wanted to be able do that myself. And I totally did! When life throws basil at you, make a mean pesto (and a paperbag snapper dish)! And let me tell you, homemade pesto smells and tastes absolutely sensational and is a beautiful bright green.
Do you have a vege patch? What are you growing at the moment?
