Belladonna Bess

An edible garden in Wellington, NZ

Summer rain December 18, 2010

After a couple of months of dry, I’ve had at least 30 mm of rain (and there has been more tonight). The following is from yesterday, but I didn’t have time to write it up until now.

Eating: raspberries, strawberries, redcurrants. One day I ate so many strawberries that I felt slightly ill, and when I went to harvest the raspberries, I didn’t really feel like eating them. A few zucchini, beetroot, carrots and lots of lettuce.

Freezing: currants and raspberries. Not a huge amount, but nice to have some of my own frozen.

Planting: potatoes (mostly Desiree), tomato, cucumber, capsicum and chilli seedlings that had been sitting around (the tomato and cucumber were mostly ones I grew myself, the others bought).
