HI. Everyone!!!! I am really very pleased with my veggie garden... Remember when i shared photo's with you all a few weeks ago well now my potatoes are up and look so healthy i can't believe how fast they are growing... Everything looks so lush and green except for the grass at the moment it needs rain. We had a light shower of rain the other night and it was just what my garden needed but not enough for the grass i am afraid it is still brown.. We need the rain badly... But look at my garden i am so pleased with it. Indi loves his silver beat to...

My Potato Plants.

Wow Lyn what a beautiful patch!
These are going to be so yum...

Can't wait to get started on my veggie garden this year... (rubbing hands in anticipation)
Hey Dee... It is so rewarding when you grow your own veggies.... They taste so much better than bought veggies.. Indigo loves his silverbeat it is so lush and Indi loves fresh veggies... I can't wait to see photo's when you get your veggie garden started....

Your garden looks great, Lyn
I'm sure you must enjoy both tending the garden and eating the produce! :thumbsup:
Thank you Deb.. Yes I have a lot of joy watching my garden grow... The veggies taste better when you grow them yourself supermarket veggies don't taste the same as your own fresh veggies do...

What a wonderful garden, Lyn. Everything looks so green and healthy! Our plants are growing too, we have potatoes, squash, cucumber, melon, tomatoes and herbs.

I bet Indi will love the fresh veggies as much as you will! :)
Thank you for sharing, I can tell you put lots of work into it :D

Good job on the garden, Lyn. I see I'm not the only one who includes veggies in it for their kiddos. I did up three pots of goodies for my kids (Mom just HAD to have the whole garden to herself :p). One has millet and canary, one has a spicy greens mix, and the other just has a variety pack of greens. My parents butchered my poor greens, so they don't look that great. I told them to only cut them back a bit if they wanted them for salads, but no, we just had to cut them down to the soil!

Anyways, I'd like to try growing some silver beet next year, too! I'm sure it's better than the unappetizing greens mixes I have for them now. The greens don't have enough of a crunch for my guys.

Sorry, I know I'm bad for getting off topic >_<. Your tomatoes look great, though. Ours are horrible. My mom's chopped off a wheelbarrow full of suckers from each tomato plant! Honestly, the tomatoes are soon going to be taller than me, and this is with Mom cutting them back every few days!
