Wonderful weather - loads of produce

I will keep it short this week - just never seem to get decent blocks of time for the blog of late and I want to do some substantial work on it too. Loads and loads of tomatoes, zucchini, raspberries and figs and the eggplant are finally showing some promise. Spent all afternoon making relish and chutney. More soon. Sarah xxx

Burkes backyard magazine is no more

I was a little sad to receive my latest and last Burkes Backyard Magazine this week. This mag has been a real life line for an amateur gardener like me. I hope that there will be a new and better replacement soon. Thanks to the magazines contributors and staff. Sarah

Tomatoes and zucchinis

The tomatoes and zucchinis are going strong. They are doing so well that another zucchini relish is on the books for this weekend and a tomato relish for next. The joys of summer! Sarah

Yes it is February already! Scary stuff, time is chugging by and I still am up to my eyeballs in garden tasks.  We have had some great rain this week, which has been really appreciated as the garden was very dry indeed.  Not much going on - the tomatoes are ripening, the zucchini are still prolific and the eggplant has started to flower.  The zucchini chocolate cake was great, but the recipe makes a catering size cake - I have had to freeze half of it.  Until next time...Sarah
