October Birdie Stitchery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This week I am treasuring having a little patch that I can grow some fresh salad and veges.... 

and linking up with Melody's Tuesday Treasures

here is my lettuce, mustard leaves and little cherry tomato plants.....


the rocket has bolted but I have been feasting... I am hoping for it to self sow and keep me supplied....


large tomatoes .....


.... with baby tomatoes forming....


silverbeet and  beans with 
either gem squash or butternut, or cucumber, or zucchini... 
I planted a selection but I don't know which ones have come up!!!!  Luckily I like surprises!!


I am trying to avoid sprays and am making my own worm wee fertiliser and use the castings when I plant.... this is some of my working stock!! 


The mulberries are delicious
we had a short sharp hail storm so you can see the tears in the leaves


machine quilting has been happening..... 


Hope your day is awesome

Your garden is looking fresh and healthy. The birds got most of my mulberries but I did manage one mulberry pie ... yummm!

Your stitchery is just awesome...

The stitchery is lovely. Those Mulberries bring back memories of my childhood. I grew up in Rockhampton (QLD) and would visit my Grandma often in Mt. Morgan. One of Grandma's sisters had a HUGE mulberry tree, many a time we came hom with stained clothes, feet, hands and lips. LOL it was such fun....

Carolyn said...

Your garden is definitely a treasure. Congratulations.

What a mouth-watering post Fiona. I love rocket- its peppery flavour is so lovely in salads. Your garden looks terrific. I love your birdie embroidery too.

As usual, another great blog entry. Your stitchery is so cute.

Your Mullberries look yummy.I have never tasted them, but I can see the juices running down your chin.
Your machine quilting looks great to, I think it will be even a sweeter quilt whenit is done.
