Since I moved to Auckland I have rediscovered the pleasures of a bit of land big enough that you can't spit over its longest axis. And in Auckland stuff grows pretty well, despite the clay under foot.
Yesterday, we dipped into the newly renovated gardens and threw together some salad for lunch out of what is popping up from the dirt. Mange-tout peas, radish, rocket, celery, letttuce, 2 types of parsely and some cold roast beetroot, seriously cool.
The first lot of peas is starting to wind down although the next lot is about to bloom and there are another half dozen in the seedling pots to plant out.
But what's better is that the zucchini and squash are about to hit the plate with the beans and tomatoes (hopefully) about 3 weeks away. And the Loquats are just hitting their straps as well, like eating pure gold.
