This week in my garden 19th august





Aquaponics, winter 2009, probably the best crop it has grown















Marmalade I made with the fruit from the little citrus trees. Blood orange, orange, grapefruit and lemon..yummy and a great colour. It will be great to get more blood oranges next year.













A heirloom variety of Broccoli...the kids used to call these Madonna's bra when they were little.













Brassica's and colorful chard

















A view of the Vegetable patch

More winter veg
















Nasturtiums and flat lead parsley
volunteers!













View from the backdoor














Stock grown from seed, smells great!













garlic and herbs















Radicchio..great colour














Artichokes...mostly volunteers!




















violets... originally these violets came from John and Margot's home in Wingham, they were Robyn neighbors. We planted them at Treetops where they were one of the great survivors...planted one here and thought it was dead and now they are everywhere...today I potted up a dozen for planting in the rose gardens.
