Winter vegetables

It feels like winter.  We have had enough rain that I haven't had to water the garden, and it has been quite cold... even a couple of early morning frosts.  Today I went to pick vegetables for dinner.....
 ....  potatoes, broccoli, tiny cabbage, carrots, capsicums and eggs of course...  and you'll notice that our eggs come with a date....  4/6 today.

The cabbages are doing better since the couple of frosty mornings.  The cabbage moths and their caterpillars are gone for this year....
 ... and the heads are beginning to form.

The newest potato plants are doing very well.  These are growing in soil enriched with goat poo from her bedroom floor.....
 ... I can't wait to see how many potatoes these produce.

The garlic is growing (also in a mixture of goat poo) and looking healthy...


The echinacea is still clowering in the "salvia patch".....
 ....  I don't grow many flowers, but this is one little patch of salvias, rosemary, bay leaves, and a couple of unusual lavenders...

The strangest product at the moment is this little new eggplant....
.... must think it's still summer!
