Its so nice to be able to comfortably walk out and about around the garden again. I have been quite surprised at how much my veggie garden has contained itself over the past few months, completely neglected by it's keeper in the later stages of my pregnancy, the rain and natural elements have been kind enough to keep it in relatively good order. These veggies have all been grown from my previous spring planting. The eggplant were slow to grow but certainly impressed once they started producing, a lone cucumber vine appeared 3 months after my cues were picked and pickled, the capsicums just keep coming and the tomatoes seems to have got a second lease of life and are producing more tomatoes they did than earlier in the season. Just one problem though . . .
Anyone got any good green tomato chutney recipes, Something in the area seems to be picking these little lollies off the vine the minute they get a tinge of colour on them, I am presuming it's birds of some kind, I must invest in a net, see if I can save me a few ripe ones.
I've been tossing a bit of capsicum and eggplant into everything lately, unfortunately the eggplant are not a favourite with the kidlets so they're not getting eaten as quickly as I would like them too, Any suggestions on freezing Eggplant or easy peasy yummy recipes?
