Friday 24th June

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, though I’m sure it won’t take as long to go through as reading would. Here are some splendid shots of last week’s Heart Garden, activities that day included harvesting, a healthy lunch with fruits and vegetables from the garden and an art session on ceramic tiles.

Figs from the fig tree

Sliced figs

This year’s fig tree has not been producing as much ripe figs as we would have hoped. Though it’s late, the fig tree in our garden has been slowly bearing more and ripe figs. Here you can see we’ve already cut some to eat. Very delicious!

Several weeks ago we also harvested four wonderful pumpkins of different sizes. Below to the left you can see what they looked like initially while the left shows that we’ve now eaten two. As you can see, they are slowly ripening and turning colour. A lovely yam has also joined the table.

These are just a few of the natural and fresh produce we get from our gardens. The coming winter is sure to be a challenge no doubt but we have already prepared ourselves with a range of winter fruit and vegetable seeds.
