Its that time of year and all systems are go. below are some photos of veggie gardens which you will have seen from simple wood structures to a blossoming overloaded food system. My mind is busy with plans to collect Blackberries, roadside fruit such as apples and plums to make jams, puree and sauce. Tomato’s can be a mirirad of things such as sun dried, puree, sauce, chopped, pasata and anything else you wish to do with them. This is the busy season for the home gardener, growing, watering, weeding, eating and most importantly sharing the excess with our loved ones.
Still the hunt continues for blackberries that are growing near water that have not been sprayed- pretty easy really but when you get blackberries- you must keep your eye on the prize because for sure you will bleed for the cause, prickles in legs and arms, stained fingers and the possibility of meeting a snake is high on reality. But if you are driven to succeed and bring home the bacon as it was then you will keep your family and friends happy with the great bounties that lye in the wilds of Gippsland
