My joy of gardening is seeing beautiful and tasty bounty harvested from garden to plate, sandwich or pot straight from the ground. This has been a good year with plenty sunshine and rain. This list includes:
Three sackfuls of potato
Six weeks of daily pickings of lettuce
Six weeks of cucumber
Endless tomatoes Friday from the vine
Four weeks of garden peas
A small carrot hill
Garlic (not matured yet)
Leeks (not mature)
The harvest bounty also provides the pleasure of sharing with family, friends and neighbours. Of course I have photographs…
I often find it rewarding to fit a macro lens to the camera and get up close to plants in the garden. There is a lot of detail and beauty which normal human vision cannot see unaided. So this is a collection taken in June.
A collection of mid-summer flowering in the garden with a scottish twist…rain drops. Its been a wet summer so far with few bug invasions apart from a bampot of catepillars destroying a pot of Night Scented Stock. I’ve planted more vegatables than flowers this year; potato, peas, broccoli, lettuce, melon, cucumber, tomato, carrot, garlic and rhubarb. This is a small collection of flower and veg close-ups.
