The finished product

Here is the vege garden with everything planted.

I know, it looks like I planted 13 tubs of straw but I assure you there are plants in there. Small and a bit sad-looking at the moment, but definitely there. If everything survives I'll have:

* English spinach
* Rhubarb
* Leek
* Dwarf broccoli
* Zucchini
* Kale
* Lettuce (iceberg and cos)
* Tomatoes (truss, cherry and roma)
* Corn
* Snow peas
* Strawberries - they're not in the photo, but they've actually survived from last year (much to my surprise as I haven't watered them or even looked at them in months) so hopefully they'll keep going and give me more fruit.

That list contains five things I've never grown before (rhubarb, leek, broccoli, zucchini, and corn), one thing I've never grown nor even tasted (kale) and one thing I killed last year (spinach) so this should be interesting! I wanted some apple cucumbers too but couldn't find them in Bunnings. I'll try a nursery on the weekend... although I'm not entirely sure where I'll put them anyway. I suppose I could always train them up the clothesline...

You have HOW many different types of tomato? Oh boy, I forsee relish in your future!

No, no, there's only one plant of each type of tomato. Last year I had three tomato plants and they refused to ripen at the same time so I never had more than four or five ripe tomatoes at once. As they were tiny little cherry tomatoes it was rather frustrating!

By the way I thought your comment on my last post was hilarious.

Wow that's amazing! I heard a recipe for kale pesto on ABC radio once. Apparently it's full of good stuff that very-green things often are ... err ... full of.

I am so knowledgable.

That looks very impressive! What a lot of lovely veges you will get from all your effort!
