It has been ages, simply ages - but better late than never for a quick update. I've been busy teaching and studying, so there's been little time to garden, let alone write. I've stolen a few minutes away from the marking to make a quick harvest and an even quicker update.

We just harvested 2kgs of Jerusalem artichokes. Yes that's 2 KILOS! That's once the dirt had been washed away too. Amazing and all from just one pot. We're going to make gnocchi from some tonight, and roast the others up with dinner later this week. Delicious.

Kale, Silverbeet, lettuce and spinach are all growing well in this chilly winter weather.

Over the summer we harvested a metric tonne of tomatoes, and are already planning the Spring tomato garden.

I'll try and post more often, I promise :)
