How does you're garden grow ....

Very well thank you! The combination of warm weather and rain seems to have done wonders and everything is shooting up.

 Even the aubergines which I didn't think would like the Irish climate:

Plus we have had the first crop of the summer, this one nearly got away over a long wet weekend when I didn't make it up to the roof as often as normal. After the debate over what to do with courgettes in an earlier post I was a little unsure of what to do with it, but in the end I went for a simple dish of courgette with lemon and garlic and pasta, yum yum!

Also, we have our first (and happy) cucumber ...


  1. Not sure the happy cucumber would be so happy if it knew what was in store for it!

  2. Congratulations on harvesting from your little garden. A little idea for extra courgettes - slice really thinly on the length and use instead of lasagne pasta sheets and bake to make a really yummy lasagne dish
