Tales from my garden

Since we came back from our holidays I started planting a lot more in my garden. We are going organic and I am sure everybody knows that this is more expensiv than buying mainstream. So it makes sense trying to grow more myself. After four years living here the possums have finally discovered the tasty morsels in my garden. My husband built a cage to protect salads and other delicate seedlings from the little critters. Another issue around here is that there is a lot of sandstone and very little good topsoil. I have to constantly top up with either compost or a couple of bags of garden soil to get things growing and something decent to harvest. I also found that watering in the seedlings with Sea-sol ( made from seaweed, very stinky!) solution works wonders

 A variety of lettuces










Leeks


 Radishes, capsicum and at the back lemongrass
 Beans 
 Mini strawberries, bearing fruit all year long
 Blueberries, never tasted anything as nice! Will have to buy a few more plants though




 Broccoli in between the flowers and succulents 

 A waterfall of nasturtiums, flowers seeds and leaves, all edible
