Because the summer has been relatively mild thus far, we haven't had to battle the blistering heat as much as in recent years. 2009's November/December heatwave ruined most of our vegetables. This year, our garden has provided much joy. Beautiful, plump tomatoes of all shapes and sizes have been harvested, with the promise of more to come. Our peaches are sweet and juicy, and free of bugs (or poisons). Garlic, capsicum, chili, basil, eggplant and many others are finding their way from the garden to our table.
This morning we sat down to bruschetta, consisting in the main of tomatoes, basil and garlic - all from the garden. The bread we used for the toast was made here in our own kitchen.
Such a nice feeling!
