The Garden Post

Whats been happening out in my garden lately? A Little and a Lot!
My small Veggie patch/Herb garden has been overcome with shade but few things are finally starting to grow and we are producing once again.
Some nice fresh beans for dinner,  we usually get a small handful like this everyday, it's nice to enjoy a fresh bean for dinner if they make it to the table...Last night we all got one each! 
Lettuce almost ready for the Table
Is that a cucumber Flower?
Yes It Is!
Some perfect looking Basil
 Young Pea Sprouts
And the Passionfruit . . .
Have you ever seen so many?
The Wild Mulberries plants I tore up from the side of the road have grown so well, even though they have been transplanted a couple of times already it seems to be very hardy plant this one...Can you see it's little Mulberry? 
(where I am pointing)
And the Black Mulberry Tree has a fruit!  Don't get too excited, no Mulberry picking adventures just yet, I'll need about 99 more of these to make a Pie!
 A small Papaya has so far escaped they eye of my little gatherers.
We have very nice looking Mandarins, just starting to show a tinge of orange on their skins
and I picked one of these Oranges yesterday.....
Yum, sweet young Navels.

BUT by far the  most exciting thing that has happened in my garden this week has been the Completion of my long awaited 
New Veggie beds...

I'm so excited, I now have a 
Hubby managed to get them finished just in time for 
Mother's Day. 
Now just awaiting a big fat truck load of Organic Soil, and one of these Fabulous Diggers books I am hoping to Win from the 
Stay tuned for regular updates on The Garden Post!


  1. Look at those garden beds! Ooo I am so very, very envious, what a fabulous start to the season you are going to have. Can't wait to see what you plant.


    ps thanks for linking my competition to your post :)

  2. Wow!! I am pretty envious of your vegie garden, I am trying to nuture my greenless thumb to no avail.


  3. WOW! That all looks amazing. The basil looks like it would make a fabulous pesto. Perhaps some homemade pizzas on the menu?
    Your passionfruit is prolific! It looks beautiful. Is it over a pergola or something similar?
    Wonderful to see your new garden beds. I am really looking forward to seeing what you grow.

  4. wow! I'm very jealous of your passionfruit crop!

    and your raised veggie beds will be fantastic when they're done - can't wait to see what you fill them with :)

  5. Those Veggie beds are great, I love corrugated iron looks fantastic in the garden. I look forward to seeing it planted up.

  6. ...and best of all, you won't have to bend over too far to work in the veggie gardens. Fantastic!

  7. They are some big awesome looking vegie beds...

  8. I love the way you are growing your passionfruit,easy for harvesting and providing shade genius!
    and the mulberries hhmm nummer nums, think of the jam(i have propagated a few this year as an experiment).

  9. I probably should have mentioned that the Passionfruit are growing up over my chook coop, just near the dripping tap...
    You can see it in the bottom photo of my veggie beds. They make fertilizer for me and i make shade for them. :)

  10. what a lovely garden post so exciting I have started to grow passionfruit from seed so far only one has germinated

  11. How great are those garden beds, the corrugated iron looks fantastic!! Can't wait to see them full of vegies. What a great present. Hope you get lots of vegie plants for Mother's Day...happy gardening!

  12. I would love to be able to grow mandarins in my garden! Sadly not possible in my little cottage garden in England ...

  13. Oh wow look at all that delicious produce! Fantastic! Your passionfruit look like giving you an amazing crop...

  14. Wow everything is coming along nicely. Great garden beds. My Hubby made me 2 out of iron just the same and I have a little tip for you. Get some old garden hose or irrigation pipe and slit it lengthwise and run it around the top of each bed. Even though my Hubby had tried to make the edges smooth it is much safer now that the pipe covers the edge.

  15. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Extremely helpful information specially the last part I care for such info a lot. I was seeking this particular information for a very long time. Thank you and good luck. hegn i haven
