July 26, 2012 Colette O'Neill Our Food Security is Under Threat! Bees spend a lot of time around Nasturtiums. Fortunately lots came up in the compost I filled the new raised beds with. It is crazy to think that these beds were only created about six weeks ago. There is a brilliant harvest to be had from these little beds already. Tomatoes are ripening and almost ready to pick. I’m glad about that as over recent weeks the price of tomatoes has shot up to two euros for a handful of small toms that are not even organically grown! These Sugar-Snap Peas have been producing for several weeks already, so will definitely save some of the seeds for next year! Food is rising in price as land is being either scorched away, washed away, or bought up by corporations! I have just finished storing the Blackcurrant Harvest in the freezer. It amounted to well over a hundred pounds…I stopped weighing out the bags in the end! The Pumpkins are promising a grand harvest as they continue to grow and produce more and more fruit…I will have to stop them soon! I made a video earlier this morning about the progress of plants and wildlife over near the tunnel…enjoy… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEnyIc7KkSc Share this:TwitterPinterestFacebookWhatsAppPocketLinkedInRedditPrintTumblrTelegramSkypeEmailLike this:Like Loading...
The garden is certainly bountiful, and such a great time of year to be in the veggie garden!
And more and more people are coming back to the land and realizing how wonderful this connection is!
