Helen is lucky enough to live on five acres where she has recently begun cultivating a kitchen garden. I am very envious and interested in its progress, as I have always wanted one of my own. We live on a fairly shady block which is not conducive to growing fruit and vegetables, so our 'kitchen garden' consists of one very hardy lemon tree, a very healthy looking rosemary plant and some garlic chives. Even so, there's no better feeling than going outside to pick sprigs of fragrant rosemary from my own garden to sprinkle over meat and vegetables for roasting, the flavour and freshness is just wonderful.
Soon, I hope to plant a tahitian lime tree in a tub for our sunny patio, as we in fact eat more limes than lemons. I will also plant another patio tub with summer grape tomatoes, which are bite size, sweet and juicy and have a high yield. I'm sounding like a farmer already!
