Summer veggies-crowded patch!

Tried to squeeze far too much into a small backyard - the raised bed is bursting at the seams!

That's an excellent garden for a backyard! And I do love the crowded look - and the glasshouse. (Y)

Looks great, and what is in your glasshouse, looks the same as the one I have had for 16 years, mine now has shade cloth over the roof :D

The glasshouse was in the yard when my partner moved here 18 years ago, so it's an old one. We had to move it when we added an extension to the house last year - unfortunately we broke about 20 panes in the process :( ! I ended up replacing them with regular glass, not horticultural glass and I'm not sure if that's made any difference.

I mainly use the glasshouse for potted herbs and starting seeds. I love young rocket, dill and basil so I sow these fairly thickly in a pot every month or so so that I constantly have a crop of tender young leaves. It also lets me grow them through the winter (although the basil won't germinate very well and the rocket is very slow growing).

At the moment the glasshouse is holding the above as well as pots of oregano, marjoram, chives, coriander, spearmint, peppermint, thyme, lemon thyme, lemon balm, lemongrass, strawberries, and some lupin seeds I collected from the garden and am trying to germinate.
