Edible things that grow in Gisborne...

In November last year I said goodbye to my one bedroom shoebox flat in Clifton Hill and moved to the country with my partner. This meant that I went from growing a few herbs & flowers on my balcony to a whole 10 acres of land to grow things on! The actual property is an olive grove but we also have a fab little vegetable patch and herb garden .. oh and 4 big plum trees and a few apple trees too.
These photos are of the food I picked last weekend - plums, garlic, basil, peppers, capsicum, the sweetest of sweet cherry tomatoes, eggplant and lettuce. Tasty treats that are now in season!
And our bigger tomatoes should be ready this week too.
