Not so long ago I was posting about creating a new raised bed for vegetables (see post for comparison) & two short months later both vegetable plots are full to bursting & we are picking lots of vegetables.
As you can see, we are not of the Straight Rows School of Gardening!
Oh no! We just pop everything in & let it get on with the job of growing & providing fruit & veg for the kitchen. The beans are even growing up the sunflowers!
Inside the polytunnel the tomatoes are doing their best to reach the roof & have little fruits already. In fact they have grown even more since I took this photo a few days ago.
We've had a number of cucumbers off this plant already.
Here are today's pickings - fresh from the garden & straight to the kitchen & later to the plate.
I like to try different vegetables so often buy seeds for black beans or striped tomatoes just to see how they turn out.
As you can see, you don't need a very big space to grow quite a big variety of vegetables & be self sufficient all summer long!
