Vegetable gardening

This broccoli was harvested from our garden.  It is so exciting to be starting to eat food regularly from our vege patch.

We have more broccoli growing and nearly ready to eat.

 It actually looks overgrown, but it's just full of food, and 'almost' food.

There are tomatoes beginning to flower.

Fresh iceberg lettuce straight from the garden tastes amazing!!

My parsley has recovered after it was nearly demolished by the possum.

There's rosemary in one corner.

The cos lettuce is delicious in caesar salad.  We pick leaves as we use them so they are going to keep feeding us for some time yet.

We also have purple carrots growing, beetroot, snow peas, zucchini, and I was hoping some capsicum would come up [I sowed the seeds with the tomato seeds but no sign of them yet]. It really is an experiment for us, we've never successfully grown vegetables before [on purpose].  I am starting to plan what we will plant next.  I can see how gardening becomes addictive!!
