Summer salad garden
My garden is suffering serious neglect, due to work travel and other commitments. I didn't go crazy this year - just planted some stuff and if it dies, it dies - but despite my lack of input, there are a few things worth eating from our garden. I only planted four tomato seedlings this year, all in the greenhouse, and over the past few weeks I've been getting a nice handful of tomatoes ripening every day. And I picked my first cucumber today! And we've got silverbeet, lettuce, herbs, some beetroot... thrown together with maybe some feta cheese from the fridge and a nice dressing, they make a very tasty summer salad.
