Veggie Patch Overview

After the last lot of chickens died hubby said "No more chooks" so we recently converted the chook pen into a veggie patch seems this area is fenced off from animals that may wish to come in for a snack! I'll work on getting chooks again sometime in the future ;-)

An overview of the patch a few days ago....
Bed 1: mixed lettuce, asian greens, spinach, radishes, cauli, brocolli & cabbage....
Bed 2: corn, eggplant, baby brocolli, brussel sprouts, honeypod peas, butter beans, purple king climbing beans, beetroot, onions & tomatoes.... (2 views to show the whole bed)....


Bed 3: Under the straw are Certified Seed Potatoes (sebago, as this was all I could get locally) and a few kipfler from the cupboard....

Bed 4: This is a garden in the middle of the yard as I was running out of room and soil to put anything else in the converted chook pen. Here we have cucumber, squash, zuchini (yellow and green) and golden nugget pumpkin....


there is also an experiment in Bed 4, a bathtub with some sweet potato tubers....

At the moment we are harvesting silverbeet, spinach, beetroot, peas, baby broccoli, spring onions, chives, lettuce and asian greens.
