On a lovely forum I am on, some of the incredibly talented gardeners have been sharing photo's of their vegetable gardens. I promised to show some of mine and also wanted to share them with you.
I'm relatively new to vege gardening, but we have big plans to expand over the winter this year so we have more beds for next summer.
Cara picking Raspberries with Dad
Yum yum, nothing beats fresh tomatoes
Edible flowers, Cara cracks up everytime I eat one in front of her :)
Small bed with Strawberries, Lettuce, Tomato Plant and Passionfruit vine (only little)
There's a mixed bunch in here, cherry tomatoes, cocktail kiwifruit, celery, spring onion, lettuces, strawberries. I plan on moving the strawberries out of this bed and making a planter out of a rubbish bin. Cherry tomatoes won't get planted in here next year, I want to give the Cocktail Kiwi heaps of room to grow.
Courgette plant, we are getting heaps off our plants now. I made the mistake though of planting cucumbers in this bed and I believe the courgettes are sucking the life out of the bed so they are pretty small. Last year our cucumbers were a success so this year is a little disappointing.

Our first garden put in two years ago, I just use this for salad type plants and some herbs. Looks a big bare, I just recently planted some more seedlings. The giant plant is a raspberry which I will be moving when it is dormant to the front.
I am loving having a vege garden and spend a lot of time out there with Cara just pottering about (and making sure she doesn't eat everything LOL)
