How does my veggie garden grow?

I was going to show these photos in my earlier post about Autumn in my garden. However, I was using the WordPress app for the first time and finding that adding photos was a little trickier than I was expecting. I can’t seem to add captions, and that surprised me.

Let’s begin anew, with apologies for any glitches in the last one and glitches that may be there in this one!

I have told you that my veggie garden, which is in the front yard, had been a waste land over summer. In March I dug and mounded and added compost. Then I planted. Look at what is coming up.

Remember this silver beet that had been lingering in a pot? It is much happier now. Behind the 5 silver beet plants are rapa. Nope, I had never heard of it either. It is a relative of broccoli, but you eat the leaves instead. I will keep you informed.

The leeks are not quite big enough for leek and potato soup, but they are doing well. That’s garlic growing behind. My neighbour told me today that she gets a severe reaction from garlic. Wouldn’t it be sad not to have garlic in your diet?

The broad beans are also doing well. I planted more seeds about two weeks
after these poked their leaves through the soil. The idea is to crop beans over a longer period. Good idea only if you like broad beans!

Lastly, the parsley is still growing strongly!

    it’s great to see all this gardening going on. I get a lot of vicarious enjoyment, and inspiration from blogging gardeners. I love veges, garlic and broadbeans so long as they are fresh not frozen. Fantastic crop of parsley, great for tabouli and source of potassium.

  2. It all looks so fresh and green, Anne. Nicely done.

    I love potato leak soup. Oh my that sounds good.

    WordPress recently changed the way you tag, label and caption photos. If you hoover over the photo, you should see an icon in the upper left hand corner. Click on that and it will open the editor. The other way to do that is to look at your media library, then click on the photo and you can edit it on the right.
