I was so excited about having my sister's camera, I went a bit mad mad. I hope you can cope with twenty-four photos! I will try to cut down on the words to make up for it.
The vegetable garden is roughly rectangular...but wider at the back. The part nearest the house has that pipe enclosure with (torn) bird netting that I have to get around to replacing.
This first photo from one of the back corners looking diagonally to the opposite front corner.
It features the corn/pumpkin/bean bed in the front.
Taken from the same place but looking along the back fence of the property...the berry house.
I must tie up those raspberries.
Still in the back section some of the carrots.
You can see that there have been subsequent plantings and they are at different stages.
A fairly recent planting of camomile (on the edge of the carrot bed) and a recently planted rainbow chard.
One lot of beans. Lazy housewife (wonderful) with some baby purple kings making their way up through them. Some more carrots and tomatoes in foreground.
Another view of the pumpkins, corn and beans - looking towards the back corner
to where the first photo was taken.
Pumpkins are beginning to set.
Top - Queensland Blue,
Middle- French Pottimarron,
Bottom - butternut.
Now into the front half of the garden
under the pipe structure.
In foreground - Potatoes (nearing the end of their growing cycle).
Right - sunflowers
Back - Tomatoes (Grosse Lisse)
Middle- Borlotti bush beans (newish) and that grassy stuff is actually leeks.
A close up of the borlotti beans and leeks.
One of the early tomatoes. Notice the two with the sunburn on the bottom left? I forgot the shade cloth one hot day.
Those are pear trees in the foreground that I am espaliering. At the rear, just in front of the shed, is another row of tomatoes - Mortgage busters, and mixed heirloom from Diggers.
Left: Another lot of Lazy Housewife beans with new Purple Kings beginning to climb.
Below: Peppers (none ready for picking), eggplant, corn (planted early and should be ready for eating this week) nectarines. Around the corn are more potatoes that have died down. I am digging these as we need them.
Finally, looking from the front corner diagonally to the rear.
There are a few things I have missed, but not much - some silverbeet, celery, daikon radishes and a couple of beds of green manure.
All the paths are mulched now
and I just love it.
