Last post I meant to talk about what I was doing in my organic garden, but I got a little side-tracked. Given that a picture says a 1000 words (and that I’m a bit short on time ), I thought I could just show you how my vegetable garden looks right now.
The left photo shows a couple of artichokes. The rear one is starting to shoot – so we should be eating them soon.
The right hand photo is of our scarlet runner beans. They are a perennial bean. Once they have finished producing they die down and will shoot again the following spring. I just love perennial vegetables!
If you look hard you’ll see tomato plants at both ends of the trellis and lebanese zucchini plants along the plot. I love to companion plant.
And here in my main bed you can see the spring onions planted amongst the carrots – another great companion planting combination. I’ve been harvesting the spring onions for a while now and have even sold some at the market. I’m just pulling a few carrots as we need them…. and they are delicious!
I’ll have more photos of what’s going on in my organic garden in the next few days – so pop back for a look
Happy Organic Gardening, Healthy Living…
