Vegetable patch – the sequel

After last years disaster veggie patch caused by trying to rush it in a day just after moving in (and therefore having poor soil) it’s that time of year again. We’ve been here nearly a year and the vegetable patch project has finally made it to the top of the list.

We have spent the last three weekends digging the patch, rotary hoeing, shovelling compost and installing a drip irrigation system and moving grapes vines into the area as the whole fenced off section is our orchard/veggie plot.

Over 70 plants have now gone in and now with water, time and sunshine we’re hoping this year will bring more success.

– Artichokes (from seed)
– Peppers (Capsicum)
– Butternut pumpkins & Queesland Blue pumpkins
– Baby carrots
– Tomatoes
– Okra (still growing from seed)
– Climbing beans
– Cucumber
– Lettuce
– Spinach
– Aubergine (egg-plant)

..and probably a few I’ve forgotten.
