Let's start by the salads harvested this morning; raf and cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, green pepper, okra leaves, flowers and fruits,
This is the bowl for the salad leaves miix, with pumpkins flowers and rucula,
They saladas come from the so called "Fukuoka area"
This lettuce is locally known as "summer gorgeous"
The kitchen here cannot work without tomatoes and they have many varieties, These are "raf"
These are "ramallet" variety, they last months for winter use and on the left are the "coeur de boeuf", delicious!
Dramatic shots of flowers to be pumpkins
I love the green beans, we are growing different local varieties,
New adds to the herbs garden, salvia farinacea, beautiful blue flowers, although you can see here it is more purple, the light or the change or color that Jean's garden post talked about?
And, my favorite so far: the okras. I love to eat all: fruits, leaves and flowers, and they can be cooked in many ways, or eaten even raw. I will talk more about them in another post.
And I love the red color in the base of the flowers!
This is the first flower of the Physella peruviana, I cannot wait t taste the fruits!
We are preparing a aloe vera garden and here are the first plants that are going to be re-planted in a new a zone of the garden,
We are using sweet potatoes to prepare good soil.
And the final images are for some garden details
