We have now grown our very first cauliflower! Our volunteer Cynthia works hard in the garden to grow lovely seasonal produce for our famous communal lunches. Along with the cauliflower are also some chillis and spanish borlotti peas.

Here at Art in the Park, we usually make lunches out of the available produce we get from the gardens. Very much like ready, steady, cook!  Cauliflowers, chillis and peas? Hm…we could make a lovely spiced cauliflower, onion, potato and coriander curry, ideal for the coming winter days. Can you think of anything else we could do with these?

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.
