A couple of months ago my mother decided to turn a section of her back garden into a vegetable patch so off she went along with my dad - digging and digging, then Sydney had some heavy rain for days and the garden ended up a huge muddy mess but its all been restored to a neat and organised area now.
There is still plenty of grass area for playing ball and running around and we're all looking forward to fresh home grown vegies! They've even sectioned a small area for my Peter to have his own vegie garden which he is very excited about! He always wants to visit his grandparents to see the progress.
There's fresh corriander, lettuce, radishes and lots of other herbs too!
My mum also had lots of pumpkin growing so on Sunday I went around and we made pumpkin pasties....cubed pumpkin, raisins, cracked wheat, cinnamon, pepper and sugar - a beautiful spicy filling!
The finished pies! I love them hot or cold! - they are delicious!
Yesterday my neighbours bought round a bag full of homegrown oranges and lemons. Their trees are currently full so it was nice of them to share them with us. The oranges are quite small compared to the monstrous ones in supermarkets but they sure taste good!
