friday's feast

We are harvesting cherry tomatoes by the kilo. Daily. Really! I don't know what Pete was thinking when he planted so many plants. Not that I'm complaining. Having a bumper crop of one vegetable or another is one of the many things that I love about having a backyard veggie garden. I enjoy the challenge of coming up with ideas of what to do with the harvest and having enough produce to gift or trade. So far this season we've traded cherry toms for beetroot, coriander, basil, sweet beets, cucumbers, onions and even the local health food store was happy to trade for our usual weekly order of millet bread.

Here is a little list of places I've enjoyed visiting this week:
