    How does your garden grow? (OP)


    I love the growing season!

    We only have a small garden, but we try to grow as much food in it as we can.
    I thought I'd share some pictures with you here.

    Please feel free add your own gardening pictures ...

    Here is our garden in its full glory! Taken this morning from the upstairs window:



    The soft fruit patch (strawberries, blackberries, white currants and gooseberries)



    The runner beans (only just taking off):



    The rhubarb, nexy to the home-built 'wormery'

    Peace

    Here I stand.
    I can do no other.
    May God help me.
    Amen.

    Come, let us worship and bow down •
    and kneel before the Lord our Maker

    [Psalm 95]

    I have only few sunflowers at this year so they are there to for the sake of beauty and their seeds I will leave for the birds.

    Summer was late, cold and rainy so not very good for the gardening but some plants grew well any ways like peas and carrots. Tomatoes gave about 7 kg totally and that´s not bad at all. Few pumpkins, more zucchinis than I needed and few shark fin melons too. Not bad harvest but I still wish warmer summer at the next year. And herbs - I got a lot of herbs. Chilis too seems to give a good harvest.

    Now it´s a time to clean the garden and then start to make new plans for the next season.

    Re: How does your garden grow?

    So logically speaking and looking from a smart-perspective, it is best to also plant certain vegetables/fruits that can handle more mild-summers. So WHATEVER happens in the sense of warmth or even wet seasons, you will EITHER way get a good harvest. As you referred to peas and carrots. It does make sense and even if other plants fail so to say, others will thrive. ..which has the outcome of a confirmation and always a joyful season of vegetable/fruits harvest.

    Good perspective. Btw, do also the carrots have a totally different taste compared to the ones you buy at the store?

    Yep, they are totally different. Already at the point when I pull a carrot out from the ground, I can smell the strong and fresh fragrance of carrots. Such odore you can´t sense when you use carrots from the store.
