This is one of 6 New-Zealand spinach plants, all grown from seed indoors! This one is the biggest because we have planted it in half shadow & the rest of them were growing from tiny plants into the full sun!

And some more yellow courgette plants. All my courgette plants are grown from seeds, by ourselves! πŸ™‚ Ooh yes!

And here are the pumpkin plants, all grown from seeds too! πŸ™‚

Here are 2 Uchi Kuri pumpkins growing! Ooh yes! Real beauties! πŸ™‚ And finally, we have 2 Butternut Pumpkin plants growing. In the beginning, they were a bit smaller than the other plants, but now, they are growing bigger each day! Further along, you see 1 Butternut pumpkin on your left side! πŸ˜‰

So, there has been a lot happening already in our garden. It isn’t finished yet!

One bad news, all of our tomato plants, in our plastic conservatory, has gone dead because they had the potato disease on them. And we grow veggies the organic way so we didn’t spray a poison on our tomato plants. So, we threw them out. Our 2 aubergine plants are doing great though. They are producing many new aubergines! πŸ™‚ Just see:

And finally, we have 10 green celery plants in our conservatory. We already have had 10 curly green lettuce crops! Ooh yes, a bit bitter & yummy too! πŸ™‚

  1. What an amazing garden! I know from my small balcony gardening, in pots (!) that it takes a lot of effort to get it to this stage.

    Your garden is just gorgeous and so healthy looking. It is a shame about the tomato plant but some of the diseases can get to them very quickly.

  15. Koko says:

    Wowwwwww!! You and Perer certainly are gifted with green thumbs! Your allotment is looking absolutely awesome! I love cavalo Nero! And I have never seen purple kohlrabi before. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with it in the kitchen! That’s too bad about your tomato plants, but good for you for sticking to organic methods!! Amazing job!

  16. Starr says:

    Sophie, your garden is gorgeous (as usual). I am so jealous of your green thumb! πŸ™‚

  17. vivalaViv says:

    What a wonderful garden! And you have such good variety of veges Sophie!!
    One of my ex boy friends who lived in the country, he had a big backyard and we grew tomatoes; beetroot and other herbs, it’s very therapeutic to watch the garden grows I think!
