Naturally there are times when I don’t paint. One of the other things I do is garden – for food. I would love to pull up all the lawn and plant food instead, and one day I probably will (alright, not all the lawn!)
At the moment, however, all my vegies are in pots. So, here are some photos…
Two rows down the side of the house, it gets about 7 hours sunlight in summer, a little more in winter when the sun is lower. Silver beet, onions, lettuce, parsley, eggplant and beans.
The cluster around the water tank – mint, sage, capsicum, chillies, basil, errr, other things
Cucumbers and onions outside the front door. I’m sure I’ll put other things here as well eventually.
One bit of passion fruit trellis, which will no doubt grow as the plant does.
A row of dwarf beans – with a pot of sage in the middle. To the left is a young zucchini
That same zucchini from a slightly different angle, with a lemon tree and a “bulls heart” tomarto (just planted yesterday)
Tomato corner. The one on the left is a “pomato” – it is a tomato grafted to a potato!
The back wall – potatoes and an eggplant. Oh, and that huge hairy thing is called “vitamin green”.
Another type of passionfruit
And a few things planted in the garden for good measure, silver beet, rosemary, strawberry and onions.
Around the back (no photo) I have more silver beet, beetroot and spinach, but it doesn’t get much sun, so I’m not sure how they will go.
