The first harvest

After weeks of diligent watering, weeding and a bit of help from mother nature, Adam and have undertaken the first ‘harvest’ in our terrace vegetable garden!

Vegetables on the terrace

The weather is warmer, the days are longer and all of sudden Adam and I have the urge to garden.  I’ve been picking flowers from our little patch of green for a good few weeks now.  I enjoy wandering around spotting what’s coming to life and picking out what species I recognise.  It feels like every time I go for a look something new has started to flower, or a plant I didn’t notice during the winter is suddenly bursting with new leaves.

While Adam appreciates having fresh flowers in the house, it’s the practical plants that get his heart racing.  We picked up some pots of fresh herbs, specifically rosemary, mint and thyme, when we did the grocery shopping last week and they’re now sitting proudly at the window that’s in front of our kitchen sink.
