Garden finally showing a bit of progress...

Things are finally starting to kick up a notch in the terrace garden – the tomatoes are starting to ripen up in large enough amounts to start planning some serious tomato dishes (like Pizza…hint hint to Nath). I seriously misjudged the Green Zebra’s being ripe and picked a couple that were totally not ready, so it looks like some really interesting dishes are still a while away.

The chilis are also starting to take shape (yay!), but the Zucchinis are still doing their weird end rotting shenanigans (boo!)

It’s such a pity the weather has been so unreliable this summer though – here’s hoping for an indian summer!
