Eating Our vegetables.

 I have just been into the garden and come back with all these.
 I will be making more of this. Courgette soup. Before you screw up your nose; it was delicious - not insipid as you might imagine.
 It has curry and spices in it .

 In the kiwifruit orchard we are busy tying up bunches of fruit and taking off the rejects. In the  top left is one to come off . It is too narrow - not round enough.
 Plenty of work to fill my afternoons.
 This morning 4 people from the pack house have been here collecting leaves to put under the microscope to check for minute scale. As they were leaving a sprayer arrived to spray foliar fish fert onto the vines.
 Last week when I didn't blog at all our second avocado was happening....with good results.

My vase of weeds. All these plants are considered weeds on this property. ( either they spread and seed down too much or like the agapanthus  harbour pests and have invasive roots.)
 I know in some countries they are hard to grow but not in NZ.

There are plenty of bees and bumble bees  around finding all the summer flowers.

 At the weekend I quilted some of my hexagons. I have a pile that need ends trimming off but will save that job for Friday. We have our P and Q group picnic that day

Lovely crop of courgettes, and looks like a couple of cucumbers too. Courgette soup sounds perfectly lovely.

Gosh your courgettes are doing well. My agapanthus (sterile variety) is suffering from lack of water this summer, I think the wind has been to drying. It won't get water till it rains cos we have to pay for water usage. I would love to be able to harvest my own avocados - how fabulous.
