Four months have passed since I finished my course and had my exhibition and I don't know where the time has gone.  I have graduated, at last, and have done 2 small tapestries, but I am enjoying pottering about the garden. The wicking bed was great for the basil and tomatoes and the other bed has had beetroot, different coloured carrots, rocket, cucumbers,  lettuce and 1 self sewn small yellow tomato the seeds of which I intend to keep for next year.

 This month I have picked about 40 + saffron flowers, not a huge amount but enough for maybe 2 risottos.

They are beautiful flowers and the saffron returns are small;  no wonder it is so expensive.

Lots different coloured tomatoes and loads of basil.

The zuccini are still staggering along.

Beautiful berries for breakfast. 

Beetroot hummus..

Nothing nicer than your own produce.
