No recipes involved in today’s post. Anthony shares with us his bountiful veggie garden filled with sorrel, broccolis, tomatoes, sweet peas, spinach, cabbage, lettuce and of course his lovely chooks. I had a taste of a bit of everything while photographing the lot – they tasted so sweet and full of flavour.
Growing up in a Lebanese family, Anthony’s Dad always had (and still has) varieties of home grown vegetables in their backyard. Anthony learnt from the best on how to run his own backyard veggie patch. He started the patch 4 years ago and slowly improved the soil over time and added in the irrigation system.
The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic has reaffirmed his belief in the importance of being able to grow his own food. “It’s a life skill that will be passed onto my kids.”
