The harvest begins

This year we are growing a few edibles and are just harvesting the first of our chillies.

We invested in a shelf unit to take advantage of the light in our kitchen. We started some tomatoes early – they are in our very small garden now – and along with two chilli plants we also have several pots of herbs that have been on the go all year.

The herbs have been particularly good value. We just bought some of the growing herbs from the supermarket and have kept watering and feeding them as we pick the leaves as needed.

There’s something very satisfying about picking things you can eat!
