Vege garden update - Week 6

Well from our last week of Woulda Shoulda Coulda - we've ticked off a few things.
Poisoned the onion weed - bubbye!
Raised the chicken wire - done
Planted in 3rd bed - done
Wired 3rd bed - done (albeit temporarily until we work out what to do with the 4th bed)
We have some new arrivals!

We'll have peas before long - how cute are they?
Also the snow peas have taken off climbing and have started to flower - pretty

The broccoli has been a little munched on, but we've now got that under control... hasn't started flowering yet.

Wombok and carrots still going crazy - carrots will need to be thinned next week or two - so we'll have some baby carrots to go with our baby peas!

3rd bed onions and chillis has been a bit of a playground for our naughty puppy, he's chewed the top off a few chilli plants and trampled on the onions, they'll probably survive, maybe a few casualties.. all wired up now so hopefully they can recover.

Planted beetroot, leek and cos lettuce with more marigolds plus two more rhubarb plants..

4th bed, it's a bit of a mystery what we'll put in there - maybe potatoes, not sure... any suggestions?
And here's a shot of some of our pot of Meyer Lemons - getting fat! The cost of limes at the moment (saw them at the local fruit market 3 for $5!) I think we'll be investing in a lime tree soon.
