Long shadows

30 June 2007
I've been out in the garden enjoying the mid-afternoon sunshine and pouring a little rainwater on the vegetables. We have some dutch cream potatoes, carrots and English spinach picked for dinner that we'll have with the last of the tuna bake. As usual, I had my camera with me in the SIDE pocket of my apron. : ) I took these photos in the long shadows of a cold winter afternoon.

Don't forget, you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them.

H is already talking about picking this kale next week to have with his smoked German sausages. I'll be having boiled eggs and pumpkin soup on those nights. He's been happy that it's growing so well as it's the first year we've planted it and it's really taken off.

I love terracotto pots in the garden, not on the ground but upsidedown, like this.

This is the garden right next to the chookery. You can see beyond the fence to the bananas, palms and loofahs.

I'm going to prepare the vegetables for dinner and sit with some knitting. I've been hobbling around with a sore hip all day and I need to sit for a while.

Thank you for stopping by.
