My Vegie Garden

This was my vegie garden last summer. Now it looks like a huge flat grassland... without the grass. Its very bare.

Wow, looks great, Pokie! Bet you had a few good feeds out of that. The lavendar's a nice touch, too. :D (I don't think I've ever had a tomato stay where it's supposed to... :? )

Thanks Luzy! I did, got plently of tomatoes and whatever else was in there - marrows, watermelons, eggplant, strawberries, parsley, rhubarb, thyme, lemon grass and PLENTY other. :)

The lavender attracted soooooo many bees to the tomatoes and I think they played a big part to their success this season. Need to prune it regularly though.


I've never had a runaway tomato though I have had a few self sowns. They fruit the best as they dont suffer from transplant shock.

Nice prolific garden Pokie,
I know what mean by bare, I just pulled out three tomatoes and have two more to go that are still (would you believe ) still flowering and bearing good sized still green toms!(probably mean green tomato pickle soon I'm thinking.) The cabbages, broccoli, snow peas and sprouts are all too small yet to fill all the spaces left so it looks quite bare to me.
