Many shades of green

I find this is the best time of the year to be gardening in Brisbane, during these cooler months.

We have had some wonderful rain showers recently and you only have to look at my allotment to see the benefit.  Healthy plants and so many shades of green.   Here are a few photos taken at the plot this week.

    I literally just finished making lemon curd using the lemons from my grandmother’s backyard lemon tree and it’s by FAR the best I’ve ever made! It tastes so amazing and the lemons were incredibly juicy. The organic lemons I buy have nothing on these.
    So eating fresh from a garden must be just the best feeling and tastiest meals. Your greens look so healthy and bright!

      Wonderful to have family with a lemon tree. My friends have a few fruit trees and they are kind enough to fill a bag for me during the season. You are right about fresh from a garden – I love harvesting from my allotment. Just have to rinse salad stuff and slap it on a slice of bread, or steam veggies up for my dinner.

    So many delicious shades of green! I am envious Jean. At the moment we have nettles and thats about it in our garden and aside from the parrot chewed banana passionfruit, we are devoid of most edibles on Serendipity Farm. Thank you for sharing your harvest with we less fortunate (colder frostier) Tasmanians and for giving us hope for October to roll around when we can start our short but so VERY sweet harvest 🙂
