Ahh back to regular posting about my favourite subject. The vegetable garden this was taken on the 2/12
My how things are growing, the boys have discovered you can hide behind the plants and eat beans or even a half ripe tomatoes (how can I complain about that when they are eating vegtables?)
This was taken today on the 8/12. Yikes!
The Potatoes are in full flower now so hopefully it won’t be long until we have some tasty ones to eat.
The corn appears to love being crowded in together, but it is very thirsty and needs a good bucket of water a day in this 32c heat.
The tomato bed is driving me crazy we have had 5 whole cherry tomatoes so far. There is so much fruit on the bushes so I wait with anticipation for the glut of summer. Tomato sauce, jam, chutney and pasta sauce with some homegrown garlic oh yum!
Bed 4 is finally looking like it has something growing in it. The carrots are all bushy (hopefully something is happening down below) and the beetroots most certainly survived the collaspe and replant earlier in the month.
And finally we have a monster zuchinni plant growing, it is a Black beauty (seeds from Eden seeds) and wow. This is most certainly the best crop I have had in years!
How are your gardens growing?
