Hope everyone enjoys the pics of my garden.. I love it most of the time but best of all when I've weeded everything and its all neat and tidy an has beautiful rows of stuff planted everywhere.
This is my first 2 paths. I've still got to put one more in on the right of this picture but my tomatos are too close to the edge and I'm not willing to sacrifice them at the moment. I've also got to put a front edge to each of them and them my kids should have no excuse for stepping on anything. I was really optimistic and have planted 3 broccoli seedlings right at the front of the main bed and am just praying that they don;t get stood on before I can put the front edge on. I'm going to get hubby to hammer in the posts some more. I actually have 4 beds but as you can see, one is completely useless in winter due to shade from the 6ft fence.
From the back, old brocoli that I'm still harvesting florets from, new eggplant and capsicum seedling, coriander, shallots, silverbeet, about 8 week old broccoli and 3 little tiny seedlings right at the front. Also in amongst it all is plenty of self seeded lettuce seedlings popping up.
The pumpkin/sweet potato jungle before I cut it back
The mornings harvest of pumpkins. Had 3 more but something (possums or rats) had already gotten into them. I still have about 5 more little ones that I'll let grow before cutting back the back part of the jungle.
The aftermath of cutting back the pumpkins. They had completely overgrown my little fruit trees (a multigraft lemon/lime/ orange, cumquat and kaffire lime) and I figured i would just pile them up and let them disintergrate into mulch.
My beautiful lush tomato plants also being invaded by the sweet potato vine and the pumpkin. I've only got 2 plants but am currently harvesting about 12 a day and they are the best flavoured tomatos I;ve ever grown.
up close and personal :)
