I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Talk about a food forest!

I am in the veggie garden daily and I hadn't noticed what a jungle it had become till I saw The Cook picking some basil this afternoon...yes she can tell the difference between basil and capsicum now.  
Having a person in the picture provides a bit of perspective.  
Check this out!

Like many in this neck of the woods I am busy with my autumn plantings of winter vegies.  
I am squeezing them in where ever I can because the summer vegies are still doing their thing.
Unlike Phoebe at Ballynoe Cottage, I can't bring myself to pull them out yet!


  1. That is so brilliant, a round of applause to you Hazel.

  2. I'm just too impatient and ruthless! If it aint producing it aint staying!
    Thanks for the plug too!!!

    Whats going to hapen to the jungle? Have you any plans?

  3. It helps that the cook is small in stature!!

  4. I want a fodd forest like that! Gosh it loks prolific, and very happy. I love those pink flowers too! I am a new follower - live way up in the tropical north part of Queensland.

  5. Certainly t'is a thing of beauty. Nice work.

    Kind Regards

  6. Food jungles are brilliant! Yours looks just right. :)

  7. Your garden does look amazing. It's like being in the wilderness but with edible species I recognise. How do you find working with it? Does the wild component make it harder or easier? I am trialling a manadala design.

  8. love it love it love it well done. Also am in awe of that wonderful photography at the top that changes everyday.

  9. Mmm what is the cook going to do with the basil, that's what I want to know... that is if she makes it out of the jungle alive! And here I though you had a "tamed" garden...

    What's the pretty pink flower?

  10. In the jungle the mighty jungle the cook she harvests tonight (sorry about that)
    I love those flowers i have never seen them grow to that height.

  11. Better brush-up on your map-reading skills. you could easily get lost in that jungle!

  12. Careful the cook doesn't pick the fuchsia flowers instead :)

  13. I hope you have a navigator or GPS just in case. Ours like a jungle too and I don't have the heart to pull out the warm veggies. I have to ask somebody else to do it.

  14. Wow! It's a jungle, but a beautiful one at that.

  15. Wow! But sure there's plenty to eat!
