Summer is well and truly in full swing with the midday temperature at 31 degrees. Fortunately the island has a cooling sea breeze which makes working outside tolerable.
I’ve been stuck working in the city for the past couple of weeks and came back to the island to find the garden in full growing mode. It always amazes me how quickly plants can grow from seedlings to producing food.
Exactly 20 days ago I planted some corn, beetroot, lettuce and peas in the freshly tilled garden bed.
The photo below was taken the day I planted.
That’s a yellow zucchini in the photo that I dropped to take the photo.
