Garden Harvest

Fresh, totally organic and straight from the garden, just beautiful! Gardening has been such a tough slog here, trying to grow things in a drought with water restrictions and horrible, horrible clay soil. But we have our small victories and these are one of them. Husband has just put in a plum and a persimmon tree as well as a couple of climbing roses. Planting anything is a gamble here without the free use of water (even with our own water tank, its uselss without rain to fill it!)
We have so many plans for gardening and growing when we get our "dream" acreage, and for the time being we live in hope that the drought will finally break.

we have had lots of cauliflower and broccoli this winter. Also a lot of cabbage.

Everyday this past week we have had something from the garden.
