L'orto - the vegetable garden

Spent a few hours tidying things up in the orto in preparation for planting in the next couple of weeks. We don't have too much in at the moment - garlic which this year is doing well as well as some lettuce and onions.

The next couple of weeks will see the major planting of tomatoes of which we will plant around 50 plants of various types - cherry, San Marzano, bue di cuore, datterini and any other that takes our fancy. We freeze quite of lot of the crop either whole or pre-cooked into tomato ragu. The taste is just so much better that any tin or bottled tomato.
