Quite awhile ago now, my friend Andrew challenged me to a gardening post - which in turn challenged me to do a spot of gardening in spite of our hot summer weather! We had a particular vegie patch which was basically only growing grass (there's another one of those, but more on that one tomorrow!!).
Anyway, I got in there and weeded and mulched and composted etc, and planted it out with a variety of different seeds I had stored in the laudry room. Funny, a few of those seeds developed, but mostly what we ended up with was a garden of tomato plants which all sprang out of the compost! 5 VARIETIES of them!! They have had fun climbing up the sweetcorn plants which I planted along the back of the bed, and have been so delicious. I pick about a punnet a day.
We've had a pumpkin vine start growing in this garden too.
There are cherry tomatoes mingled in with grape. Also "tom thumbs" which the children LOVE!
The corn plants are now a few feet higher than in these photos, and will be ready to harvest in a week or two. Yum!!
