Pretty in the garden

My garden has plenty of pretty right now… flowers and an abundance of summer veg. Before it all starts to go downhill (water restrictions are now in place and even though the nights are cooling, the day time heat keeps on coming), I thought I’d share some photos. These were all taken this afternoon:

Tomatoes ripening

My tomatoes have grown to an unbelievable height (they are almost touching the roof!), but thankfully it’s not just all plant and we are getting an amazing crop too. I have a feeling in a few days we are going to have so many ripe tomatoes we wont know what to do with them all…  Any special recipes you have please send them my way! How is your garden faring? Hope you are having a wonderful weekend… Janette xxx

    Beautiful colours – and bare feet too! Totally the opposite of what we have here – snow, brown trees, and handknitted socks (3 pairs today).

    Beautiful pictures of your gardens, I’m jealous buried in snow right now. As for tomatoes, the only thing I do with tomatoes is to make sauce. I love a good sauce on rice, veggies, and even pasta. Hope the watering restrictions don’t hurt your bounty.
