Vegetable Time

Along with doing the sunflowers the other day, we also put in a whole heap of vegetables.
Steve likes to grow tomatoes, he is the only one in the house who eats them raw but he enjoys growing them.

Tomato plants

We have always thought about growing some corn as well, so we put in a very small amount to see what it will do.

Althought we have noticed already in the first week that it is growing very quickly!

Last year we grew courgette for the first time and it was fun, so have put in 2 different types this time. 1 green and 1 yellow.

Yellow sunshine Corgette

Green courgette
  Although we were not quick enough at getting the snail bait out the first evening and we lost one of the courgette plants overnight! We replaced it this weekend and added heaps of bait!!
Which meant that yesterday morning when I checked we had 17 dead snails around the veggies!

 Steve has decided that this year he is going to grow eggplant and peppers. Never grown them before so we will see how they turn out.

The pepper growing strongly

The start of the eggplants

Will keep you up to date occassionally as to how our plants are growing.
