And So It begins...

It always seems to suddenly bound upon us every year - that time when we go from impatiently waiting for everything to grow, to ACTUALLY eating stuff! A few weeks back it started with the cherries. A week or so after that I noticed the birds starting to eat the apricots, so I picked them. They were very small but extremely tasty. For our first year of fruit we did really well with a bowlful. Then it was time for the white peaches to picked. Although this happened a little earlier than expected when the weight of the fruit and the strong winds broke a large branch of it. The fruit happily ripened inside on the kitchen bench though :-)

In amongst all this fruit eating, the vegetables have almost gone unnoticed. After checking the garden though, we are now eating the first zucchinis, loads of broccoli, plenty of fresh herbs and loose lettuce leaves.

{Sigh} Life certainly doesn't get any better than this!
