More Veggie Photos


Here are some updated photos of our ongoing vegetable garden project. This one is tomatoes, onions and potatoes. They all seem to be doing really well.



This is the corner of the vegetable garden which looks fab at the moment. The french beans are starting to grow up the bamboo canes, those tall things at the back are Lukes sunflowers, in front of them are 5 pumpkins plants, and in the two beds in from you can see nasturians, onions, lettuces and broccoli.

This is the right hand side of the garden where most of the veg are growing. The nearest bed is the herbs (with a gigantic Fennel in the middle - looks like a tree). Then the next bed is the iceberg lettuces, which are almost ready to eat. On the right you can see the poles for the mange tout, but they were badly attacked by slugs at the start and never fully recovered. The next bed is the cauliflower and courgettes. Then there are two more bed, the left one is red cabbage, and the right (with the pyramid poles) is peas. Then there are two more beds with parsnips and carrots. The parsnips are ok but the carrots dont seem to be growing. Down the sides there are various fruit bushes.

It reminds me of better times when you were all small and Dad and I used to enjoy veggies from our garden in Borough Green (happy memories)

I remember having tomatoes from the greenhouse in Hale Road. And didn't we used to pick green beans from a neighbours garden or something?!

Your garden looks wonderful! Ours I can't say that about. Still only a few small cherry tomateos and they were eaten almost as soon as they were picked :)
