    One of two vege gardens we built recently, this photo was taken about 10 days ago.

    Vege garden

    What we’re growing: mesculan, rocket, buttercrunch lettuce, spinach, radishes, spring onions, bok choi, butter beans, peas, beetroot, celery, broccoli and cauliflower. The other one isn’t full up yet, but does have some potatoes, yams (my fave!), Wee-Be-Little pumpkins and some more brassicas.

    We also have a smaller side garden with tomatoes, basil, courgette, rhubarb and strawberries, plus a herb garden located near our kitchen.

  • My vege garden. I’ve since converted it to a raised bed which makes it a bit easier to work with.

    My pride and joy.  Making it from leftover cobbles and 2x8s was the most fun thing I’ve done for ages.  12 beds of 3 x 1.2 m plus a big bed for permanent veges like asparagus and strawbs etc keep our whole family fed almost all year long.  My next project will probably be a greenhouse to keep us fed for all of the 12 months.

    Sorry, wish I was as clever as the people before me – still haven’t worked out how to post my photo – HELP!

  • My Veggie Garden

    My garden is about 90 square meters and I grow a wide variety of vegetables. First started gardening about 35 years ago and am a bit of a fanatic.

    One of my passions is growing tomatoes and currently have over 40 plants. They are starting to ripen just now. Plant these at three different times to ensure tomatoes through till almost the end of April. This season it’s Black Krim, Brandywine, Beefsteak. Money Maker and Tommy Toe.

    I also enjoy growing pumpkins and have 5 varieties growing in another area not far from the main garden.

    Last year I constructed two bath tub worms farms which now produce almost 6 litres of worm juice eack week. This is used on a fortnightly basis on most of the veggies and works a treat. Some of my tomatoes are well over six feet tall and I attribute this to the use of worm juice.

    Hi this is a link to a few photos of my garden. We were lucky enough to buy a place with a tunnel house, initially, I did not think I would ever use it. Now it is a blessing, my outside garden has not been very productive this year. Nothing like picking fresh spray free food.

    My vege patch is on my patio , apratment living is hard when you have a green thumb due to the limited space. I have lettuces , tomatoes and herbs growing .. It has been hard trying to squezze in every ounce of space for plants.. but in  the end the result are very rewarding and decorative when looking up from the ground…

     

    Enjoy~
