Vegie Garden

Today Nelson and I got stuck into the vegie garden.
It's really been the weed garden for quite a while!
We planted snow peas, cos lettuce, tomatoes and zucchini.
We've also put in some potatoes. It will be interesting to see how they go. Hopefully, all that good chicken manure helps everything grow. Just got to make sure the 'girls' don't get into the patch!
Still haven't decided what else we'll put in. Nelson wanted to plant carrots but I think it's the wrong time for them. Might try some rhubarb. I don't eat it but Noel loves it! We'll have another trip to a different nursery and see what we come up with.

Oh wow! That is the most awesome veggie garden ever!!!!!
How about some butter beans? Ours are doing alright atm, our tomatoes have gone beyond expectation, with over 100 having been picked and shared amongst our neighbours, and over 200 left on the plants and still ripening or growing! How's bout some eggplant and some sweet potato? And Jerusalem artichoke is wonderful!! And you should plant some basil, parsely, thyme and rosemary along the edges, as it helps keep out pests and you can add it in your cooking and oh yummy!!!
Well done guys, keep us up to date with the growing and picking of everything!!

Hello Christine,

Nelson looks so happy in the patch helping you. I hope he eats what he grows!!! The Gardening Australia website has a great list of what to plant when etc.
Happy gardening.
