Home Grown Goodness!

I have missed the days of Summer salads... and nothing beats making them with home grown produce!

Planning to get stuck into the garden tomorrow to pot up some new troughs for even more delicious goodies for us to grow and harvest.

Urban living never needs to be an excuse for not reaping the rewards of home grown goodness! Space never needs to be an issue! I have a garden, yes - but it does not get anywhere NEAR enough sun to grow anything we can harvest, so absolutely everything I grow is done in pots which are scattered outside my front door where the sun hits - and I manage to harvest a relative amount of consumable goodies!

Tonight, not only is our salad comprised almost completely of everything home grown, including the beautiful viola flowers, which yes - are edible... but our main also consists of deliciously nutritious home grown spinach too - and ALL week, I have been enjoying our wonderfully sweet tomatoes!

Life is too short not to enjoy home grown nomness!

❤❤❤

Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx

I want to get to that level with my little garden. Right now I have mini sweet peppers and tomatoes growing, along with some chives. :) I need to pick up more seeds for other things I want to grow :)

We also get some delicacies from the mother earth (parsley and other herbs, "topocho" which is a kind of banana) at home <3 have a more exquisite taste indeed.
I love your photos and I can imagine how delicious that salad was <3

Mmmmm i couldn't agree more, nothing beats home grown! What a feast you found. Lots of love to you @jaynie and happy gardening! ❤️

That first salad there, I make on exactly the same except I do the carrots differently. These one's have been shaved with a peeler? Looks good. We're heading into Summer too and are shifting from steamed vegetables to salads...A great time of year...Except we're not producing our own foods just yet. The farmers market has to provide for us. :)

Wow. You've gotten a good start on your this year garden! Bit over a month after the solstice which would be April for us. You've got to be in a pretty temperate zone to have outdoor tomatoes in April.

Except for right here, of course. I've just gotten my tomatoes started for the year :) It really gets too hot for them in the summer...

My back garden is north facing and although I tried to grow things this year, it was all a bit of a failure. I like the idea of pots as we're lucky enough to have lots of private off road space to the front of the house. It is south facing so lends itself to growing things. I shall have to give that a go next spring.

I LOVE tomatoes so hope to have them coming out of my ears next season!
