First Summer Salad

2013_Jan 016I have just picked the first tomatoes and cucumber of summer and added some rocket for a fresh salad. The garden beds are looking productive again after the lull when the winter vegies were finishing and the grasshoppers delayed the spring planting. Zucchini, basil, chillies, peas, eggplant are all ready as well and the celery, beans and strawberries are growing strongly.  The challenge has been keeping enough water on them over the heatwave.
