Vege Garden

A few good days of steady rain has helped kick the vegetable garden along nicely. I have already been picking lettuce,  spinach and  bok choy. Capsicums are fruiting well at the moment too, I have 3 plants in from last year that are still going strong. So far we have planted broccoli, red cabbage, brown, white  red and spring onions, spinach, bok choy, beetroot, leeks, rhubarb, capsicums, carrots, peas, garlic, radish, lettuce and rocket  as well as herbs of parsley, thyme, rosemary and basil.

Linking today with Shadow Shot Sunday 2

A full tank of rainwater helps keep the watering expense down.

  2. It all looks so good. And nothing touched by wintry winds. Beautiful.

  3. That's a beautiful garden! What a joy.

  4. You sure have done a lot of work in that veggie garden. I have tried and tried but given up this year and will just concentrate on herbs and the natives. What do you do with all the vegetables there are too many for just two of you, surely.

    1. Thanks Diane, we are trying to grow things that keep like onions, pumpkins garlic and things that freeze and bottle well, plus the neighbours have taken a liking to me, ha ha. I had never made tomato relish before or preserved beetroot but I had good success with that last year.
