Our Autumn Garden

I thought I would share some photos of our main veggie garden now that the seasons are changing...

Looking right down the garden toward the coup(south)

Looking left toward my kitchen and neighbours home

The new coop we did about 3 months ago...we call it the luxury villa!

First bed - holds tomatoes, last corn, globe artichokes and basil

Second Bed - carrots, tomatoes, new cabbages interplanted with peas

Third bed - Chilies and sweet peppers in the front, celery in the middle and potatoes at the back

Fourth Bed - coriander, brinjals in the front, runner beans in the middle and lettuce (new) at the back

Fifth bed - Gem squash at the back, middle new leeks, lying fallow at the front with one lone italian tomatoe plant :-)

The last sections are right outside out kitchen door...on the left I have herbs in pots (thyme, rosemary, lavender, basil, oreganum), a nice healthy rhubarb plant and the vine growing.

On the right is a raised bed which has more chilies, tomatoes and melon, this is also our "nursery" where our seedlings grow until planting.

Lots going on, and lots more planned.

I think your garden is great!
I am growing again this year, but most is in pots and tubs.
I also like to cook from scratch, it is more rewarding :D
