I was slammed back into it today. Back to work. Back to reality. I loathe it. I have the back-to-work blues. But lets not talk about that. After work, I checked out the vegie patch. I admit, it needs some tender loving care - weeding, mulching, fertilising, bug control. But it's still producing, albeit a bit slower this year. It's only really just started to kick off. I love being able to step outside and pick off some produce for the night time meal. That's exactly what I did today. It helped to kick some of those blues.

{green zucchini}

{yellow zucchini}

{tuscan kale - something is eating my beautiful kale, I'm guessing some sort of moth or caterpillar, so I'll be trying this recipe tomorrow.}

{tomatoes are only just starting to flower}

{the basil in and around the tomatoes seems to be keeping them healthy - and the bird poo, nice!}

{pickings for tea}

{ready to go}

{with this}

{and this - angel hair, the only way to go}

{to make this - the small likes her pasta plain, with a bit of grated pecorino - saves the arguments at the dinner table}

{it's how she rolls}

So, back-to-work blues, as well as Monday blues, was combated by the vegie patch. It makes me sane.

How was your day?
