It has been ages since I have posted any shots of the garden.
Here is the flower bed down the side fence out in the backyard. The roses are all in bud, sweetpeas are flowering, as are aquilegia, cornflowers, the last of the spring bulbs and foxgloves. It's fairly unruly but I like it.
The foxgloves, if you ask Lyndon, are a huge pest, but they do flower well and provide nice height in the garden.
Out the front, the icebergs are starting to explode into bloom. My two standards are so heavy with buds I wonder how on earth they stand up. In fact, the one below is tethered to the house to stop it falling over! The lobelia below it is so pretty, but the spent bulbs in amongt it do make it all look a bit messy.
Out in the vegie patch I have a few things under way.
Here you can see my raspberries and broad beans. Sheesh, look at that bloody ivy in the background. Out. Of. Control. Must attack that soon...
I've also got zucchini, corn, silverbeet, lettuce, peas, potatoes and runner beans on the go.
This year we have planted our tomatoes in pots. In the couple of weeks I have potted them up, they are growing well.
I have a big yellow variety, mini black Russian, one that I can't remember the name of but is very tasty, and two 'new to me' heirloom varieties - one is Deutsche Fleiss and the other I cannot remember at the moment.
What have you got growing in the patch?
Have a lovely weekend friends. I have the weekend off work, but will spend it making bits for my market stall. It's only 3 weekends away!
