Around the vegetable garden

Some pics from around the vegetable garden. We’d gotten our tomatoes in quite late last season, around Christmas so our cropping was also late. We’d rebuilt this bed using copious amounts of chook poo from the Stoneys somewhere (maybe too nutrient rich), and we those howling hot northerlies which killed our other celery, parsley, coriander and lettuce seedlings.

Still, it’s gratifying to have tomatoes ripening this time of year. The cherry and mini roma varieties are going great guns and very tasty too. Unripe tomatoes from a pile of prunings Anna made have ripened very well. Millipedes and other critters seem to have taken a liking to the larger varieties. And the chooks have made a haven in the undergrowth of the main bushes!
