Tending the Rhubarb and Tomato Jungles

The pleasures of a vegetable garden

butternut pumpkin flowers

heritage beef (cuore di bue) tomatoes


French bean blossom

canasta lettuce

Tuscan kale/cavolo nero

datterini tomatoes
chilli peppers

Another is making the garden look good. Nature tends towards chaos but we plant in rows, train, pinch out and weed to create a modicum of satisfying order in our vegetable jungles.
