I wasn’t going to put in a veggie garden this season as I have VERY limited water – no mains, so whatever rain I can catch and store. Not to mention the fact that I’m full on renovating! But I just can’t help myself. I love growing my own veggies and particularly my own tomatoes. There’s just nothing like picking your own tomatoes off the vine and eating them straight away… they’re sooooo delicious!
So I put in a tiny veggie garden – about 4 metres square and against the shed I have 4 cherry tomato plants that are absolutely thriving – even with only occassional watering. I planted them in mid October (spring here in South Australia). I got to harvest my first ripe tomatoes for Christmas and they’ve continued to offer sweet, mouth-sized little snacks ever since. The bushes are much taller than me (and I’m 5′ 7″ … umm… I think that’s 170cm or there abouts).
Sorry, I’m in my painting gear!! There are four plants at the back and a smaller yellow pear tomato bush on the left of the photo.
