There is nothing to compare it with, this satisfying feeling of growing your own food. This is today's crop: tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes and mint. They are fragrant and very very tasty. They taste like Summer, like childhood...
Many more vegetables are growing in our garden. The beans will be ready soon. I planted them quite late this year.
In the greenhouse sweet tomatoes are quietly ripening ....
while outside the lilies are in full bloom.
We planted miniature Japanese Maple in the flower bed and it is doing pretty well.
My husband only cut the lawn twice this Summer, letting the wild flowers grow in the grass. It is so nice to see the bees and the butterflies buzzing ... All is well in the garden.
I hope you enjoyed this little garden story.
