Veg out

Our garden has been very good to us this year. The mild summer has helped no end - all of our crops have benefited from the lack of 40 degree days. Tomatoes, sadly now almost finished, have been rolling in since just after Christmas. We've feasted on eggplant, capsicum, apples, peaches, garlic, basil, beetroot, figs and chillies. We generally eat everything we grow, but there's usually extra to either freeze or give away to friends and family.
It's been great. We currently have our autumn seeds and seedlings in, and I am looking forward to the challenge of growing food through the winter.
The proof of the vegetable garden is in the eating!
