At the back and on the teepee are beans - both scarlet runner and one we call "Brian's bean" for the obvious reason as Brian gave us the seed and he didn't know the name of it. Anyway they are doing very well and I generally pick a half bucket every day. Brian's bean is a flat yellow bean that doesn't need "stringing".
In the foreground is the Delicata squash that my brother recommended. I managed to buy 5 seeds on "trade me" - unfortunately only one was viable.
The weather has been very variable this year - drought then heavy rain and now humid. The first fruits that came on the Delicata had what I assume was blossom end rot. It now looks as though we will get some squash but it is early days and one never knows what the weather will do. The leaves are greyish but that seems to be their colour rather than mildew.
tucked under the squash are some beetroot.
and on the other side some carrots.
At the other end of the garden are two Lebanese cucumbers that are slowing down at the moment but have been producing a huge crop up till now and a self sown potatoe.
Then there is silver beet known as Swiss Kale in Europe, this has grown huge but is very tender. We had some last night as a change from beans.
In my garden I just have rocket which went to seed very rapidly but which I am leaving in the hope it will self seed, parsley, mint, basil, chives and perpetual spinach.
