Christmas in the garden

Because the weather is so unpredictable in December, we usually have turkey burgers (we have turkey roll rather than a whole turkey) for Christmas Day dinner but I forgot to buy buns and the ones I made turned out more like dinner rolls so we had a salad instead. I pulled some lettuce leaves from the garden and also harvested the first of the Black Russian tomatoes which was rich and juicy. Unfortunately the bugs also think so and I'm having a hard time keeping them off.

For Boxing Day dinner we used up the leftover turkey in this Turkey a la King recipe using a lovely green capsicum from the garden.

Here are some photos from the garden as it is currently. For some reason they are all sideways but I can't work out how to reorientate them.

Pototoes in grow bags. Have had a few early 'new' potatoes. More are ready to be harvested.

Ballerina apple

Capsicum (2nd year production)

Corner bed - tangerine, ballerina apple, dwarf pink lady, asparagus... and some flowers

Raised bed - squash, celery, turnip, tomato, zucchini and a random cucumber that self-seeded

Black Russian tomato - the stockings are an attempt to protect from pests

Christmas dessert - topped with strawberries from the garden
