Yet, it's not all doom and gloom, we're still harvesting super sweet and incredibly crisp cukes, lovely pattypan zucchini, armfuls of basil and enjoying daily salads with over a dozen greens tossed in for colour, texture and flavour.
Here's a visual tour of some of my favourite nasturtiums - we've got about 8 different varieties this year.. they can be a bit aggressive, but I adore them!
|Calendula from our recent trip to France.. so unusual!|
|I can't seem to capture this colour.. Double deep pink nasturtiums from Belgium.|
|The 'black' nasturtium.. it is really deep coloured - very burgundy! Small leaves though.|
|Vanilla Berry nasturtiums from Renees Garden.. but, look at the colouring on the petal edges! I must save this seed!|
|A more typical looking Vanilla Berry flower.|
|Creamsicle nasturtiums from Renees Garden - very peachy!|
