We really aren’t having much luck with carrots – they just don’t seem to want to grow for us. I have a row that came up last week to thin out tomorrow. We’ll see how they go this time.

Oh good. Cauliflower. Perhaps you can tell me what on earth is eating my cauliflower. Whatever it is, it has gnawed at all the leaves and left just the ‘bones’. I don’t know whether to spray it or just write it off as a foregone conclusion!

WOW, that is a gorgeous pot holder. I am quite envious.

And I wanna make a deal, I will come over and do your ironing, and you do me a vege garden.

I’m glad you like it! (The potholder, I mean.)

I’m also one who can’t grow carrots. Pity, because I have two kids who are addicted to them and I go through about 5 bags a week.

gorgeous pot holder and I am so envious of your vege patch – my caulis went purple and I didn’t dare each much of them.

Love the pot holder, it’s gorgeous 🙂
Having trouble with my carrots, too, think it’s the cut-worms that live in the soil knocking them off over-night.

Good looking garden. There isn’t anything like fresh veggies out of the garden.

Beautiful pot holder and what an amazing vege garden you have!

I love my potholder too.
Your garden looks great. Mine is just getting started. I have tomato seedlings which have taken off well, but the seeds I planted have only popped up in the last few days, they’re only about 3-4 cm tall.

I love the pot holder. Gorgeous.

And the vegies look so good, and I am insanely jealous. One of the pitfalls of city living, not really enough room for a “real” vegie patch.

Your garden inspired me to get working on one of my own.

We now have a tomato plant, an itty bitty pumpkin plant, one capsicum and about 8 silverbeet.

Ironic as I think green leafy veggies are the evil but silverbeet has grown very easily for me in the past. I’m hoping for similar results this time round.

I wonder if my neighbours would object to me planting passionfruit vines out the front on body corporate land.
