Ruby Lou

Ruby Lou. That's the name of the variety of potato I had mashed with tea tonight. Home grown and freshly dug today of course and tasty as.

The carrots are for the coleslaw tomorrow night.

Well hello Ruby Lou
good-bye heart






And here is the handy Broccoli that I had with Ruby Lou, sadly though I over cooked it somehow.

Mostly weeding in the garden today though I did plant some parsley that I'd grown from seed and some thyme that I struck from cuttings.

Fertilized the Strawbs and put some 5 in 1 around a couple of caulies.

The garlic I planted last weekend has sprouted and seems to be doing fine but and escapee chook made a mess of the shallots I planted.

More rain is predicted for the weekend so it looks like I'll be chasing more weeds around in a fortnights time.

Anyways, cheers and happy gardening.

Great harvest there. Ruby Lou looks a stunner. Glad to here about the garlic. I thought it may be too late to plant but maybe I'll put some in on the weekend.
