Hi. Everyone... I can't believe how much my veggie garden has grown... Since i put lime on my garden they have gone nuts wild and everything else i can think of that suits the growing.... I am so very pleased with my potatoes. Wish my dad could see them he taught me how to grow them seeing he was a farmer himself...
Indi has fresh silver beat to eat and also chick weed to it is also going crazy. Ill take a photo of that after and post it here.. We are going to get a good crop of beans peas and i can't wait to see the potatoes... First time for Capsicum but there is only little flowers on them.. My gabbage has is also going nuts to... I also use special thrive and other good things in the soil all organic... So here is my wonderful garden...

They are really doing so well Lyn. Just wish I could grown things in winter as well as summer but I don't get enough sunlight in my yard anymore.
Thanks Kate. The weather is funny right now you think it is going to warm up and then it changes and gets cool again i am back in a jumper again today.. You have been getting hail and rain wind floods in the one day...

That's wonderful, Lyn you have been doing an excellent job in tending to your veggie garden! It's great to have your own source of fresh veggies for you, your mother and Indi, now that's quality of life! :2thumbs:

The little ladybug is cute too. ;)

Luckily where I am Lyn we rarely get hail. It sort of hits on either side of my town and misses us usually. If we get hail it is very small and melts immediately. We have only had one bad hail storm in the 30 odd years I have been here. Parts of Sydney have had some heavy rain though and we were a bit worried when they started releasing Warragamba Dam which was also overflowing. If conditions are right and we get heavy rain and the dam releases water our town can be cut off and parts flood. My street doesn't flood but it is really difficult to get out of town. But from the weekend we have had nice warm days and lovely cool nights. Makes sleeping more comfortable. If it could only stay like this all year I would be happy.

Thank you Kate.... Wish we could have some of your rain... It's really dry the grass is dead...

Those look amazing! You've put a lot of hard work into your garden. Fresh food! Yummy! :)
Thank you Celyia...

Wow, everything looks so good and the plants are all healthy. Those pictures should be in a gardening magazine.
Thank you Cody....

Wonderful pictures of your beautifully healthy garden, Lyn!

And, I LOVE the pictures of the ladybug. :D

Wish I could have a home-grown tomato that sounds heavenly!
Thank you Deb... It is easy to grow tomatoes you should try... Must be Spring for the lady Beatles to be out there are a few of them around.... Glad you liked my photos.....
