Last weekend we cleared a patch of garden that was covered in weeds in anticipation of planting some vegetable seeds I picked up from the Little Veggie Patch Co. a few weeks ago.
The Little Veggie Patch Co are a Melbourne based business that specialise in the design, installation and maintenance of chemical-free vegetable gardens. They have a stylish nursery that makes vegetable gardening feel very cool.
They sell these packets of heirloom seeds and I'm totally in love with the packaging.
They have a book out about how to grow veggies in small spaces and their website is definitely worth a look for some inspiration. I can almost taste the bruschetta now made with these beautiful home grown heirloom tomatoes, perfect for weekend brunch or lunch. My daughter was off school sick today so had limited time to get this post up...but I'll include a bruschetta recipe here tomorrow.
Update: As promised Bruschetta recipe follows, I made this bruschetta after school drop off so it was breakfast...so tasty and a perfect example of using a few ingredients but the best you can find to make something really simple and yummy.
Toast some rustic, country style bread slices.
Rub toast once over with half a clove of garlic if you wish.
Drizzle with some olive oil and top with diced tomatoes mixed with basil, olive oil and some sea salt and pepper or
Sliced avocado, a squeeze of lemon and top with cannellini beans (from a tin & rinsed), salt, pepper and finish with a little drizzle of olive oil.
Pile filling on top of toast and savour the experience.
