Indeed the effort has served to offer me a comparison.
When I look at my own outback it keeps changing each year, each season, each month.If I didn't keep an inventory and map in my head I'd lose my gardening way.
Mine is a very (very!) mixed planted garden. Different vegetables and herbs are cheek to jowl -- assuming plants had faces.Now that I've installed a spear pump and sprinklers anything now is possible.
I have water like nothing before.
At the moment the Vetiver clumps are taking off so I have this intense sense of expectancy that the next change is sure to be awesome.
If I keep the mulching up this is a very easy garden to manage. Little weeding and happy plants -- if they get plenty of water.
And no pests.
I get Cucurbita fungi but that's a given. I can rule that what the pundits say about multi cropping is true: the bugs don't know what's what when you confuse them with miscellany.
To give you an idea of the mix I thought I'd offer a list of what's growing:
The only regular fresh fruit and veg purchase we have to bring in are carrots and stem celery. Also fruits for the partner's breakfast.
Assuming, that is, I remember where everything is growing and ready to harvest.
But then, once upon a time, 7 years ago we started with this:
And the plants live happily together ever after.
