Summer Garden Update


Chloe sitting in the new garden with the lettuce & carrots behind her.  It's great to see her take an active interest in the veggie plot, she loves to water, weed & of course harvest the goods.


This is the new plot, its coming along slowly but pretty much everything has at least sprouted, now we just have to wait for things to get bigger & see if they produce well.


Some lettuce & heirloom carrots, all coming along nicely & before I know it we will be picking the lettuce, this will be the first thing we harvest from the garden this summer


Beans with the potato crop in the rear, going nuts!  I'm a good Polish/Lithuanian girl so love my spuds, hope there are millions under the dirt


Asparagus slowly appearing, a couple of years before I get to taste this bed


Four different tomato varieties, spring onions & leeks in the rear

I have the rain, now I need some sun so all of these babies can grow, grow, grow...

They are going so well. We have heaps of rain and sun so our garden is growing like weeds. We have had piles of salad but I am still waiting on tomato to go with the greens :)

I love our kids being involved in the garden. :)

Hey Ange, your garden is looking wonderful!

Hope you don't mind but I've sent you a 'blogger tag'. All you need to do is pop onto my blog, get the 8 questions you're to answer and post the answers on your blog. Once done, you then get to nominate others and make up another 8 new questions. Just a bit of fun! Leigh

Amazing looking garden Ange ... Now I'm moving to the inner north, I'll be popping around to seek your garden advice!
Enjoy your harvest

Your vegie patch is looking great! Must be exciting watching the vegies grow and then getting to enjoy the fruits of your labour!

Oh WOW! Happy 2011 to you....it has been so long and look how old Chloe is, what a beauty.

Your garden looks divine and I will admit to being very jealous indeed.

Thanks Kiki, I really must post some new photos of the garden, its more than doubled in size & I am now harvesting, beans, lettuce, spring onions & lots of herbs, with a lot more on the way soon. Am very pleased with the results so far!
