The vegie garden is back in production. YAY!!
Our own supply of fresh produce again. YAY!!
There's a small amount of lots of different vegetables. I had mixed success with the seed I started in trays. Some did well and they are in the garden. Some are still struggling to be ready to plant out. The seed I sowed directly in the ground did better. Not as many germinated but those that did have grown more quickly and healthily. I also bought some punnets of seedlings at our local nursery.
The first baby squash have started to appear...
and the first of the beans....
and the snow peas.
Some of the lettuce is ready to use and their successors have been planted. There's some red cabbage seedlings I've just transferred from their tray at the end. Don't know if they'll survive, though. They look a bit scawny. Along the trellis at the back are some snap peas just getting started.
Aren't baby zucchinis cute?
The spring onions and broccoli seem to be going well together. There's a few beetroot at the end of the bed as well. About 4 or 5 of the seeds I sowed have come up. I'll add some more soon.Basil self-seeds everywhere. Generally I let one or two grow and pull the rest out but I've transplanted some to grow along the edge of the tomato bed (a bit of companion planting). The tomatoes, at the moment, are romas and self-seeded (probably cherry). I am still coaxing a few seedlings of other varieties which will hopefully survive to go into the garden.
Africanaussie in North Qld and Hazel in Victoria both grow it successfully. Since I live half way between, when I saw some at the nursery I couldn't resist. So far they look healthy enough.
I missed not having the vegies over Summer and felt a bit guilty that I'd just let it all go wild, but it's back again with a vengeance. I feel like a REAL gardener again.
