I've got a bit of a vegie garden going. Basically, we have the space, I enjoy growing my own food, and it's a great way to get the kids to eat vegies (nothing better than eating what YOU grew). I also like taking close up photos of the vegies as they grow. I find it's amazing what you can see when you look really closely.
"Do you like my ears?"
My corn has started forming ears.
Growing Blackjacks (zuchini)..... one plant can produce up to 4 a week.
Spinach and Silverbeet harvest from a month ago.
This wierd weather this last week has certainly agreed with two things. My brocolli seeds and "meadow mushrooms" growing in the back lawn.
This is about half of this batch. Normally get mushrooms growing right through to July in our back lawn. Boscaiola for dinner tonight!
G'day Jason & MartyH
Our attempt at growing carrots resulted in distorted stumpies like yours. I googled around & found that the carrot is sort of the root system, & that too much fertilising makes them lazy.
I think Dale's onto it with his deep loose soil & natural goodness from the worms.
I've done the first thining of the carrots. OMG they taste fantastic! We had chicken stir fry tonight.
