Today I offer a photo post documenting my garden as it is right now.
It is late summer in southern Australia and my garden is overflowing with growth.
This is my garden today.

We are aiming to supplement our bought produce with that grown at home. I don't think we will ever be self-sufficient with our fresh produce but that won't stop us from growing as much of it at home as we can!!
As well as being organic and fresh it is heaps of fun to see something growing and then to pick and eat it.
The kids love grazing in the garden too. They eat heaps of raw fruit and veg during the growing season and that has to be a good thing!
How is you garden growing right now? What are you picking?
