|Chives, primrose, buckleaf sorrel and mint|
When I think of a harvest of home-grown produce, I think of flat baskets brimming with vegetables. I think of pretty china bowls overflowing with fat, lucious sweet berries. I think of happy people climbing ladders in orchards to pick fruit. However, I started late this year. It’s already June and although we use our own herbs several times a week in our cooking, but I’m anxious to get to the point where I can start harvesting “real” food from our garden. So far my pepper, tomato, courgette and other plants are proving reluctant to oblige.

What do you think? Can you count herbs alone as a harvest from the garden or is it nothing without actual vegetables and fruit?
