Day 1 of blogjune
It’s the first day of winter today but it was delightfully sunny so I went for a lunch time stroll to the community gardens behind Glenferrie Oval. There were just a few bare patches but most of the gardens were still bursting with vegetables.
Our vegetable garden, on the other hand, is looking a bit sad.
We do have some seedlings coming along for red and yellow leaf lettuce and two types of silverbeet, but the only plants we have to harvest are a couple of silverbeet plants still going strong from spring. This is a Digger’s Club variety simply called “Green Silverbeet” with deep green leaves and pale green stalks.
We’ve harvested a bunch for a cheese, walnut and silverbeet pie for tonight’s dinner.
