Spinach is going great. The 6 little plants are giving me enough leaves to put in pasta's once a week and to put on sandwiches. My first broccoli heads are forming well - only about 1-2 weeks till I start harvesting them
And not long for strawberries. I ended up buying 4 more plants so that I have 10 and put 5 runners into potting mix to get another 5 plants - somehow, I don't think that 15 plants will suffice with my fruit bat children :)
And last but not least, my blueberries are flowering!!
My other bed has been planted with some french butter beans (At Erica's garden visit, she had them growing and looking well so I thought I'd give them a try), 2 more zucchinis, cucumber, and corn with the room at the front left for my broccoli seedlings which are coming up nicely. I'll also find space for my lettuce seedlings and leeks around there somewhere as well.
Well thats it from me, in another month, I'll post some more pics as things are starting to take off.
New garden bed planted with broccoli (green King) left front), beans (yellow butterbean) middle, lettuces, baby spinach, silver beet (because I wanted the baby spinach for salads and not enough left over to cook with) (front right) new zucchini's (green this time ), and 2 cucmbers (back of garden)
On the verge of a Zucchini glut, the other plant has just as many. Good though, been making zucchini slice and zucchini cake.
Lebanese eggplant starting to flower. YAY, with all the zucchini, I'll be able to make some good lasagne
Capsicums planted. Can't see it on this really well but they have tiny flower buds already.
And finally for dinner tonight - sweet potato and coriander soup. Straight from the garden
