will it be divine in 2009?

If nothing else, it will be lush.

Rain glorious rain throughout December meant I returned home to a veritable forrest in my veggie patch.

Full marks to anyone who can identify the featured plants (especially the fruit with the broad leaf that's now being crowded out by the nightshade family!)

May you get all you desire in the coming year. Wishing you a (fairtrade, 80% cocoa solids) chocolate coated 2009.

I just don't know my plants well enough to guess what they might be but they do look lush - I agree that the rain feels like a gift when I look out to the garden! Hope that your 2009 is a good one!

Ooooh a chocolate coated year sounds good, AOF! And may yours be fruitful and delish:)

Believe it or not, my capsicum is actually suffering from *too much* water.

Happy New Year!

That garden of yours is looking luscious! I'm loving this mild and rainy summer. At this rate, I may even become a 'summer person'.

Your plants look lovely, while I shovel the snow from my back porch. I have no idea what your fruit plant is, but I'm curious. Fill us in.

As for a chocolate filled New Year -- sounds good to me! Add a little almond and dried cherries to the dark chocolate and I'll toast to that.

Here's to a healthy and happy New Year!

Dolmades will be made this week! Ran - the vine is for both, though I suspect the Greek family who planted it 50-plus years ago made table wine from it too.

Ah...snow..seems like something out of a Harry Potter book after two days of lying on the beach!

And Duncan - same to you but with macarons on it :)

Docwithc - that Vitamin D is great for happiness (in fact a deficiency of it is a documented cause of depression).

Foodista - yes a better 2009 sounds just fine.

SWF - you too )

Johanna - all will be revealed soon.
