Our Vegie Patch - 8 days on

3 of our baby cherry tomatoes,
one of the benefits of seedlings when planting late.
I love this picture

A thin layer of mulch around the seedlings, we now have zucchini in and the bare earth is where our carrot seeds are sown. We're having very hot weather this week so on our watering days we're giving it a really good soaking as you can see. Once this hot spell is over, well add cucumbers to the empty mulched areas

These are 2 huge organic zucchini we were able to take, free of charge from the 'excess produce' table.
I've turned the light green one into soup and the dark green one is yet to be cooked with - quite possibly it is destined to be zucchini slice. I didn't weigh the soup one before using it but the dark green one weighs 1.2kg!!

... and if you're wondering how to make zucchini soup - easy!
In a pot chop zucchini into large chunks, add a large onion (quartered), a couple of peeled potatoes and home cooked chicken stock to cover. Simmer till cooked - I just did mine overnight in the slow cooker - and then puree and salt (celtic sea salt) to taste... See - easy!
