Happy Winter Solstice

Happy Winter Solstice! A few days ago was the shortest day, winter solstice. Although that means days will only get longer, winter seems like it still has a long way to go. But the garden still has some life in it despite the cold days.

Last update was about The Garden of Plenty (aka Mike and Karls borrowed garden) this week I will show you what is happening in our backyard.

carrots going well!

Silverbeet grown from seed

Silverbeet bought from the farmers markets this weekend – wanted something a bit bigger so I could start eating it already! Will plant it out into the Garden of Plenty when its a bit bigger

Garlic shoots are coming up nicely

Italian parsley

Winter garden + pinot – marigolds still in bloom too, sage not as happy

That is all for now!

Finally this is a painting I have been working on every Sunday for the past 5 weeks 🙂

Looking out the door at my old flat in Flemington
