The New Vegetable Garden

I am taking it easy now that the redwork quilt has been pieced together. It's on it's way to Murray Bridge in South Australia to be quilted by Matty's very talented Aunt. I can't wait to see it when it's done.

Anyway, I thought today would be a perfect day to show you how my veggie garden is coming along this time round.

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you might remember my failed attempt at growing veggies earlier this year. I'm happy to say that this lot is going much better, which is funny since I went to a lot less effort and simply planted the seeds directly into the raised beds:

As you can see the snow peas are growing out of control:

And I think some of the lettuce is almost big enough to harvest:

I can even see some little tiny onions:

But unfortunately it looks as though my broccoletti has gone to flower:

I'm not sure how that happened. I'm out there every day and it didn't look like it was ready to harvest, then BAM... flowers!

I also have some zucchini, tomatoes and capsicum in the beds, but they don't look like they're really taking off.

So long as I get to eat one thing out of my garden this year, I'll be a happy chappy!
