Australia Day

A quiet Australia Day this year; the weather is less then ideal. Overcast and a bit drizzly. Perfect for having a nosey around in the veggie patch for a bit of a mid-summer update.

The zucchinis are finally flowering, though no fruit yet.

My self-seeded pumpkins are staging a mini takeover of the wood heap.

The butter beans are finally making an appearance.

Beetroot ready to be picked.

A mango tree (!) which appeared in my compost heap (and a self-seeded tomato plant behind it). I'm not so sure it'll survive in Melbourne, but I'm going to give it a go.

Todays bounty of beetroot, red onions and butter beans.

And some yummy bruschetta with homemade parsley pesto and boccocini. I do love homegrown!
