Growing local

A walk around the happenings in the garden is to experience a lot of up and down.

There are a lot of plants hanging about. Hangers on -- attaching themselves to on-hand climbing or clambering things.

Nowadays every new seedling I plant is marked with a stick.

It a dog defence.

Here we have a vista mix.

For the very keen of botanical eye are carrots, spring onions, culantro, coriander, cabbage, and tomatoes.

Doing well: perennial capsicums. Not super tasty but serviceable.Semi shade too.

The potatoes have risen among a mix of garlic, broad beans, watermelon radishes, and some 'Paris Market' carrots that have just peked out to the Modern World. These are behind the snap beans.

At upper left are Purple Sweet Potatoes and a squash or pumpkin.

It may look like an organic bomb hit it, but you are looking down a pathway consolidating between two Vetiver hedges. On high is the Bottle Gourd --stretching to the shed at left -- and a lot of the green stuff are tomatoes...and climbing beans.

On carrots: let's not speak too early. Just switched to the short ones.

I find the perennial caps to be sweet but only if left to fully ripen.  I just wish they were a little fleshier - takes an awful lot of fiddling to do up my chilli con carne with them.  You seem to have good luck with carrot germination - mine have to be pampered and even then it's hit and miss.
