Fruits and Veggies at home

Posted on: January 9th, 2012 by admin 1 Comment

While holidaying here on my parents farm, there is so much fresh fruit growing, I get a stomach ache from noshing on everything.  I am making a lot of regular recipes -  Lemon yogurt loaf, lasagne, zucchini bread and some fresh fruit crostata’s.  But really my favorite thing about summer is just fruit salad.  Here’s some of what’s growing right now.

Macintosh Apples.

Pistachios

Nashi/Asian pears

Figs

Plums

Lemons

There are also a lot of regular veggies we collect every day.  Zucchini, carrots, assorted lettuce, nasturtium flowers, tomato’s, silverbeet, Vietnamese mint, cucumbers, basil, purple beans and radishes.  It really is awesome to have a massive veggie garden and orchards.  I dream of having more than my little balcony to grow these tasty treats on.  One day.  For now, I’ll just enjoy someone else’s hard work.  Hope you’re all having a good first fortnight of 2012.

    Me too! I’d love a proper garden. Your mum and dads’ property looks wonderful though!
