The Garden

I was a bit sore and sorry today after yesterday's efforts in the yard, so I confined myself to lighter activities such as photography and light housework. I thought I would share some photos of our garden. This is the first year that we have tried having a serious vege garden as opposed to growing a couple of lettuces in a pot.

Roma Tomatoes   

They're floweing! 
Dwarf Peas 
Various Lettuces
Pumpkin seedlings
These are just the first few things we have planted and we've already eaten a few leaves off some of the lettuces. They're very tasty and soo fresh! Free Range egg and home grown lettuce on a sandwich. It doesn't get any better than that.

I also took photos of some of the other plants in our garden.

Sunflower Seedlings sprouting for the chooks

The flowering Mulberry tree!

More Mulberry flowers
Young Marigolds
Mango blossom 
Budding Jasmine 
Not sure what this is called, but it's pretty!


  1. My goodness - you're growing such a myriad of things! I'm quite impressed!

  2. I'm soooooo envious of your lovely sunshine and big nature fruit trees. Especially the mango. I adore mangoes!!!! Yum!! Still getting morning frost down here...sigh.
    The last flower pic is a bougainvillea I think...a climbing plant?
    Loving your garden.
