Bounty from the garden

I had the best fun this afternoon. It was time to "lift" our very first crop of potatoes. We had planted 6 Desirees and would you believe they produced about 4 kilograms of new potatoes!

It was alchemy, it was magic, it was like digging for treasure.

The garden has been kind to us - today we ate white mulberries and plain mulberies, drank lime juice from our limes, ate our avocado on toast at lunch time, managed to sneak two blueberries before the birds got to them, and ate broccoli, snow peas and bok choy we had grown in our stir fry for dinner. What a joy!

The first potato and what remains of the mulberries - and yes the evidence of eating the rest of the mulberries is on my fingers and my lips!
