in the vege patch

The other weekend, VCH got all the children out to the vege patch to do some weeding.
I went out and took some photos to share what we are currently growing.

There is a large patch of chillies waiting for VCH to make his chilli relish.

Some snow peas, 
not likely to see any of these in the kitchen, 
they will be eaten well before they make it that far!

The silverbeet- great for making these!

Cabbages coming along.

Carrots- we have been eating lots of these- they have actually made it to the kitchen, 
but I do think a few have been consumed along the way!

Some shallots on the left, strawberries in the middle and some cauliflower on the right.

Here is a picture that shows the extent of the gardens.
VCH loves his vege patch!
While it is a great asset it would help if he informed his wife what is ready, 
when it is ready so she can use it in the family meals while it is at it's best!


  1. That is spectacular Dea. You are so lucky to have a husband who likes to maintain a vegie patch and what a patch it is. Have a great week.

  2. WOW....what a great veggie garden....hope we do half as well!

  3. Those are a LOT of chilis! Brew up some hot stuff for us! What a beautiful garden you have.

  4. Hi I just found your lovely blog, how wonderful to have the space to grow your own veggies, I think I need to make more room.

  5. Lovely big productive garden. If hubby is not very informative you may need to go for a morning walk through the garden yourself and spy out possibilities for immediate use. You may even be able to snaffle some peas before the growing children devour them, or would you need to be up with the sparrows to achieve that, lol?

  6. Wow - you have a huge vegie patch... I'm a bit green (no pun intended). Puts my two little beds (currently empty) to shame. Love that your kids are eating it straight from the ground too. I used to do that as a child, peas in particular are so delicious straight from the pod. xx

  7. wow that's amazing. we have just turned over our patch with horse pooh blood and bone and compost ready for an early spring have inspired me.

  8. That's a lot of vege patches. I would love to wonder and discover each day what is growing, flowering and ready to pick. What a wonderful gift to have a husband who is interested in gardening - or anything around the yard and house.

  9. Wow - that is one healthy looking veggie patch. Yum
