Spring Vegetables....

Our beetroot is nearly all ready for harvesting so I plucked my first three for a fitting Spring vegetable dinner last night.

Just adding our cherry tomatoes, which have been booming, and some basil fresh from the patch and it's too easy to whip up a little something delicious (but quite difficult to photograph)....

I'm feeling quite fortunate today after enjoying our homegrown fresh goodies and the rain in the warmth and safety of our home. Sunday's spectacular storms have left many just on the other side of town in a natural disaster zone, who must be feeling quite wet, hungry and devastated with homes destroyed and sadly one life lost. There is a delicate balance in natures fury and today we are the lucky ones to have been able to admire it's show without the fear and loss of being in it's full wake.

That meal looks delicious. No doubt it tastes even better because you grew it. No satisfaction like that of a vegie patch!

Those beetroot look stunning, I agree it is quite difficult to take decent photos of food, especially if a hungry crowd are waiting for it. (I'm hungry, why do you have to take a photo now - is one of the comments I often get)
take care

Looks like you are enjoying the garden's bounty. Those colorful veggies look so vibrant and full of life giving goodness. I think your photos capture it well.

You are so right in remembering to count the blessings of each day- especially in light of those who are not so fortunate. How sad to hear of that storm's destruction.
