Most of the tomatoes are in so far and I'm growing 5 varieties this year: Giant Syrian, Aunt Ruby's Green, a large Italian beefsteak, Zebras and a Currant tomato mix. I' really looking forward to having fresh tomatoes with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and some fresh bread - Heaven! Most of the tomatoes will be used for making sauce (except for the Zebras and Currants which are salad tomatoes) and paste that we will use for pizzas and pasta sauce mostly.

Ollie, my little pup is settling in well, but he has managed to eat a whole lot of chicken manure and I wont mention what it has resulted in!
As a bit of inspiration, I thought that I'd share some pictures of my mum's great little veggie garden. She manages to grow a whole lot in a very small area in a way that is more casual than a more traditional productive garden. Her great success this year has been Zucchinis and peas of which she is already getting substantial harvests. I visited her yesterday and managed to pinch 5 little Zucchinis, some of the last broad beans and some rosemary that she was cutting back. I think I will make some Zucchini slice or fritters perhaps for sinner with some salad leaves and radishes from the garden... hmm, great idea!
