Late Spring in the garden

We’re officially self-sufficient in terms of salad greens, cucumbers, broccoli, kale and herbs at the moment. The tomatoes aren’t ripe yet, & the plants are being besieged by little green caterpillars. I’m reluctant to spray as the birds are hovering around picking off bugs… Unless the problem gets really drastic, I think I’ll just use the old fashioned search & destroy method.

We have two little zucchini growing on the compact plant in the front yard, & the blackjack plants are growing well, as are the chilli & eggplant seedlings.

A friend came by this morning with a small box of about a dozen stone fruit… She’s moving house this week, and won’t be able to deal with all of them. I’m considering trying out my low-sugar pectin & making a small batch of juice-sweetened jam this weekend…. But I may just bake a good old nectarine crumble.
