This year we decided to do things a bit differently and used bark chips rather than flags to make paths to get around our growing area.
We also put a raised bed in the corner.
Here is a picture of the growing area shortly after the first few seeds were planted:
We used bark rather than flags for the paths this time and have added a raised bed.
This is the growing area a few weeks later:
This picture, taken early in July, shows several different crops we have grown including turnips, rhubarb, peas, pumpkins, broad beans, potatoes, beetroot and more..
Here are a few more photos showing some of the crops we have grown:
Here is a sample of the actual beetroot roots from the above row of plants.
This is our first crop of peas.
These potato plants were grown from compost in containers.
These are the potatoes harvested from the above plants.
Our blackcurrant bush has already produced a few blackcurrants.
The two plants on the left are strawberry plants we planted last year which have started producing strawberries again.
Here are some strawberries that we collected from the strawberry plants a few weeks later.
These gooseberry plants we planted last year have started to produce fruit again.
The raspberry buch we planted last year is now yielding fruit again.
These gooseberries, blackcurrants and raspberries we collected were used to make a very small amount of jam.
These are broadbean plants.
Here are some broadbeans we collected from the above plants.
These are the first few turnips we harvested.
The second crop of turnips was approximately 7kg. Many of these were grown from seeds produced by turnip plants last year.
Hopefully, these turnip seeds we harvested will produce a bunch more turnips next year.
Here is some parsley we planted in a chimney pot.
Here are a couple of mini cucumbers we picked from a plant we grew on the patio.
This is one of our spinach plants.
