Thankful for the year 2011
This post is linked to Thankful Thursday – hosted by Kate Says Stuff. Find the link at the end of this post and be sure to visit. As it is the final one for the year I am sure there will be some lovely posts.
I have so much to be thankful for this year as it draws to a close. Firstly, the safe arrival of Cuddles (almost 1 year) is something that I give a silent thanks for each day. He is truly a precious gift. I am thankful that Punky (almost 4 years) is such a lively little ball of energy with a hilarious sense of humor. He makes me laugh everyday and reminds me of what is important in life. I am extremely thankful I have two happy, healthy little boys.
I am thankful Mr Fresh puts up with me, loves me and works hard to support us. I am grateful he is a handy man, and that he happily turns my ideas and requests in the garden and the house into reality.
I am excited that I have found a new outlet for my passions of cooking and gardening in the form of this blog. I am very thankful for those who have supported me by reading it, those who have offered advice and those who have spread the word to their friends. Thank you!!
So this is the round up for My Patch for 2011. My summer garden was planted close to the time that this blog commenced. I set my self a challenge to collect produce I grow from the garden and use it to cook with three times a week. To date it has been reasonably easily met with an abundance of salad and spinach items available. Now the exciting crops are starting to come along. I have an eggplant maturing, capsicums and tomatoes, snow peas, zucchini, leeks and artichokes and of course plenty of salad and spinach. I will start some new projects in 2012 but continue to write recipes for dishes made from the produce in my garden. As my garden grows I am continuing to record the progress in my Garden Record Journal.
Here are some pictures of my garden I took on Wednesday morning.
