A few weeks ago I took some pics of the nursery. Everything was thriving and so I've done a bit of planting out. I also wanted more space to plant other seeds, so it was time, ready or not. Firstly, the tomatoes went in. They are a heritage breed called money maker.
They are all going gang-busters so we should be drowning in tomatoes in the not too distant future. In the row in front, though they are not visible in this picture, I've just put in watermelon and this will act as a ground cover over this whole patch once they get going. Behind the tomatoes, in the last row, I've put in a few gourd seeds. I haven't grown gourds before but just like the look of them, so we'll see how it goes. The second crop of beans are starting to climb the two tee pee trellises you can see in the back too. Also in this patch are my yellow zucchini and they are just starting to set fruit. I love making fritters with the zucchini (and carrots, onions, beans and parsley) and can't wait for the first ones of the season.
You may remember that I planted flowering creepers over each archway to bring the bees to the patch. The one I planted over this patch's archway is in full flower and is just gorgeous
