Garden roll call

 

I thought I’d do a garden roll call and also as requested a photo of my new washing machine planters. Don’t they look super cool? I love that on one side of the garden I have 3 new washing machine planters and on the other side of the garden I have 3 old ones. In the photo you can also see the nectarine I got for my birthday and my new dwarf peach tree.

Veggies: spinach, silverbeet, kale, red onion, potatoes (2 types), yams, garlic, shallots, snow peas, corn, carrots, beans, celery (for the bunny), dwarf beans, butter beans (the beans still need planting)

Herbs: basil (I’ve planted this everywhere; where there are tomatoes I’ve put in basil seeds), oregano, thyme, marjoram, mint, parsley, sage, chives (2 pots), coriander, lavender, rosemary, curry.

Fruit: tomatoes (3 different kinds), strawberries, raspberries, black currants, blueberries, boysenberries, passion fruit (looking very sad hope it comes right), grape, cranberries, orange berry.

Fruit trees: apple, bay, dwarf cherry, nectarine, dwarf peach, lime, loquat.

That’s an impressive list if I may say so, especially considering I only started my garden in March this year.

Plants/ trees I want: sweet grape, dweet, mandarin, avocado, an omega and a black doris plum, feijoas, tamarillo, cape gooseberry, gooseberry, blackberries, brown fig, watermelon, honeydew melon and zucchini.

Gardening is so addictive! I am just loving it. This weekend we’re borrowing a rotary hoe to dig over the next area that I’m going to turn into a veggie garden.  Can’t wait.

What are you growing and what’s on your wish list (Thanks Gwen for this idea).

Update: saw a wonderful friend (Kris from Healthy Alternatives) today who spoilt me and gave me some plants; a gooseberry, some other kind of berry (we’re not sure what it is), chocolate mint and a large feijoa tree!!! Wow thanks so much Kris. Also got some worm wee!!!
