52 Shades of My Veggie Patch: Week 23


Summer 2013

Hot. Cold. Cold. Hot. Hot. Hot. Cold.

No wonder my plants are so under-whelming this year. Turns out it is not just me and my black thumb having a disappointing time in the veggie patch this year. On Tuesday I spent the arvo in my mum’s vast veggie patch hoping to absorb some garden knowledge from her while we tended the meagre offerings of her 20 year old patch. She too has had a bad time with her plants and produce this year. I blame the crazy weather. El Nino or whatever.

My mum encouraged me to get some more seedlings so I went for purple dwarf beans and a more mature capsicum plant (just can’t seem to let this capsicum dream go, can I?)

Picked a whole heap of tomatoes…..tiny little delicious tomatoes. I went to the farmer’s market last week and saw the same types of tomatoes that I have. Except they didn’t look miniature at all. My green zebra tomatoes are just runty.
