I love to grow my own vegetables and have a huge patch in the backyard, fenced off by white lattice and a rose-covered arch. Gardening really is a miracle — at this time of year, I potter around each evening … watering, fertilising pumpkin flowers, checking for the first pink bloom on the tomatoes, and picking beans and zucchini.

Planting enough red spring onion seeds was one thing I didn’t do this summer ... the few I did grow were succulent and, quite simply, beautiful, which is why I grabbed my camera before putting them in the pot.

Don’t the roots look like tentacles?

Why not check out out my tomatoes and zucchini too.
