Luscious Jo’burg

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the January 13th, 2010

Back in Jhb and enjoying our fantastic climate. We really have the best weather. We have been down in Kzn for three weeks and had a very relaxing holiday – an eat, sleep, read and swim kind of break which was just what I needed.

The garden is looking luscious, we have obviously had lots of rain. It is a bit too luscious in places – my catmint is exploding, lettuce, spinach and chard have turned into seed head towers and some of the beetroot have reached soccer ball size. But the beans, tomatoes, chillies, potatoes and squashes are thriving. An ex Jo’burger friend who now lives in Madrid was here this morning. He had forgotten how quiet it was – the only thing we could hear was birds.

It is good to be home.
