Easter 2005

Another week of fabulous autumn weather. The only downside was that I had to water the garden a bit more often.

Last week I harvested eight more tomatoes from the original plantings. Since these plants are still relatively healthy, I won't be able to plant any crops for autumn/winter yet. But I don't mind much as long as they keep producing nice tomatoes :)

The first of "Costoluto di Marmande" tomatoes are almost ready to harvest. It will be interesting to see how the taste of these tomatoes compares with the others.

I harvested the first capsicum this morning, and look forward to making some peperonata tonight. If you're interested, here's a link to a peperonata recipe.

I also harvested an aubergine this morning. I'll probably use it later in the week.

On Saturday morning I resumed feeding the plants with seaweed solution. Depending on how the plants go, I will probably feed them with the solution once every three weeks, rather than each fortnight.
