Nearly harvest time!

I started a two month culinary school last week which has kept me really busy. I can’t wait for the weekend to show off what I learnt from the school.

Meanwhile, my garden is doing really well. Lots of new family members to introduce today and  I will be ready to give away some chilli plants in the next few weeks.

  • My cherry tomatoes are doing really well. We’ve had a few ripe ones already and they were amazingly sweet.
  • There is a melon growing on the vine which is now the size of my hand. I have never grown melon before so I am very proud!
  • Finally, my favourite – Thai basil and mint – which both come in useful when I am cooking different dishes! Its great to walk out to the garden, pick the fresh herbs and add them straight into my cooking!

    Hi Nicky,

    Your herbs and plants look amazing! Do you use any fertilizers at all for them?

    thought of growing my own basil but not sure if using artificial fertilizers be good for health 🙁

    Hope to see more pictures of your garden!

    Cheers,
    Di

    Hi Di, I think using organic compost soil helps when growing herbs and vegetables. I also give seaweed fertilizer every two weeks. Believe me, I spend a lot of time taking care of these babies everyday. check out your nearest garden centre for seaweed or organic fertiliser. What other herbs are you growing?
