It’s been ages since I showed what’s been happening in our veggie garden, so here’s the latest!
The tomatoes took off as soon as we planted them. They must be in the perfect spot! We were so excited by the speed of their growth, that we didn’t start to train the branches until after they were heavy with fruit, and by then it was a bit too late. Next year I will know to arrange the branches so they aren’t all laying on top of each other.
We have Roma and Cherry tomatoes, though the aromas have been attached severely by harlequin bugs. We have to be quick to pick the ripe ones!
The new pea plants have struggled with the heat and didn’t survive.
New onions have been planted since we got some great sized onions from last season. But there are only a few shoots of the new seedlings left.
Lots of flowers and 2 nice sized zucchinis
The rhubarb has given us plenty of yummy stalks already.
Our last crop of potatoes yielded soooooo many that we decided to plant some again. They haven’t popped up yet, though. More leafy greens have gone in.
The front beds have produced lots of different kinds of capsicums, but we aren’t sure when to pick the greeny-yellow ones, but the dark green ones are yummy.
The cucumbers have gone wild and have given us loads of good sized fruit.
The pumpkins are throwing off lots of flowers but no pumpkins yet.
We’ve had to pump quite a bit of water into the garden lately due to the heat, so hopefully the plants will yield (or continue to yield) some nice big produce for us in a few weeks.
