Vege Garden Update: Baby Garden for Autumn

Well it's a start!

After the giant  beanstalk debacle, we've decided to do peas in a pot.  It's only taken a few weeks for them to sprout up and tendrils have started - they are so cute!  We've surrounded the pot with chicken wire for it to climb on.. Can't wait to see these grow up!

And although all these little rows look identical, they're not!

Savoy Cabbages, Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli, Cauliflowers

And we've also planted some seedlings of PEST CONTROL.  Nasturtiums.   Snails/Slugs don't like them, and like the marigolds, gives some colour to the vege garden.

This is what they will end up looking like:

And here's some extras from around the garden:
The passionfruit has taken off - this time next year I will have a passionfruit stall out the front of my house with 7 vines (4 varieties)!

Still need to source and plant garlic and plant in the baby garden some leek.

It's raining a lot of this weekend, we're hoping for some breaks in the weather to continue weeding/making room for autumn garden... wish us luck!
