Garlic, zucchinis and a precious artichoke


After the big rains in June, temperatures have now reached an average of 33 degrees, and the garden is exploding! We’re still waiting for the tomatos but starting to cash in both giant garlics, plenty of zucchini as well as carrots and herbs.


Golden nugget tomatoes, a new addition to our garden this year. Nice and sweet and ripens fast since they are small.IMG_3593Our pretty little italian artichoke (now eaten).
