I do. And half of it is rocket. I cut some this morning and probably got a little over-enthusiastic but I felt compelled to do a little tidy up. The lettuce was my first lesson in gardening 101. Its so easy to sow half a packet of tiny seeds... but how much lettuce can one couple eat? And green salad is not the most comforting of winter foods. The funniest thing of all is that I have so much rocket.. I don't even like rocket all that much! Definately learnt my lesson.
Amidst all the cut back rocket I did discover one of my mesclun mix sprouting buds. Might try for a lesson in seed collecting.
Also back amongst the follage are my beetroot and whats that poking up? Finally deciding to make an appearance, my first beetroot... root... weee! As you can see there is a little bit of a bulb on the one next to it but the rest have nothing. Even with *ahem* little bit of clearing I can't see anything. I'll have to wait for the others to catch up a bit.. no point harvesting one baby beet is there?
So here is today's harvest. You're gonna have to turn your head a little, sorry. I've uploaded it a couple of times from its landscape! location. No idea how to rotate here yet =(
I'm thrilled about harvesting my first broccoli, I can't believe that came out of my garden!
The other thing of note is today's garden visitor. A bee! He was very handsome buzzing around my tomato flowers, legs laden with pollen. By the time I focused the camera on him he decided he had enough and left. I don't know why I should feel so excited to see a bee in my garden, I've seen wasps, but that's not quite the same. I think the bee represents the ultimate sign of approval and proof of life. My little garden is now offically... offical!
