It's a particularly dreary looking day out, but I snapped a few pics when I checked my veggie pots to see if I needed to water :) Thought I'd share! A post or two back, there are pics of them from about 2.5wks ago to compare...

My silverbeet are looking glorious... just a couple of weeks ago (scroll down on that link) they were tiny things that couldn't even stand up by themselves!  Now look at 'em go!  You can see my 3 biggest tomato plants behind them (black russians)  They are caged for support as they grow, but earlier in the week there was INSANE wind, so I had to stake them so they didn't lay down like lounge singers.  Basil sneaking into the shot on the right ;)

Lettuce!  These have gone just crazy, we've already cut and eaten some with several meals and they've only been planted for about 2 weeks. They're mixed varities of lettuce's and Asian salad greens.

 More tomatoes!  These guys are cherry tomatoes I believe.   And my very happy spring onions back there :)   DH sprinkled coffee grounds around the tomatoes, as I read that they like them, so we'll see how they go.  We chose these 3 plants as they were lagging a bit behind the others.

 Close up of the silverbeety goodness.   A few more weeks and we'll be making my fave Cheesey baked Chard recipe (that I stole from a fellow blogger, here!)  We don't do ours vegan, so I use regular cheese & milk... and it's to die for.  Quite often DH & I will have that and a roll and call it dinner ;)   You can bet when I put in my garden bed, silverbeet will feature prominently lol

 AND last, but not least... the newest member of the Hobbit household *sigh*.   THIS baby was my birthday present from my darling hubby & his parents... Isn't it beautiful??? lol   It's gotten a fair bit of use and we're getting pretty good at making a nice coffee...Not consuming much instant, except when I was desperate Monday morning and had to race out to meet DH during his van catastrophe!   And boy, it just was NOT the same!
