How does your garden grow?

Wild is my answer to that question!

Trying to tame the garden is a mammoth task but, so far, I have managed to tame the veg patch and now have lots planted (and fenced off to protect from the rather fat wild bunnies that live in the garden!)
I am growing radish, spring onion, lettuce, garlic, carrots, beetroot, parsnip, brussel sprouts, onions, potatoes, spinach and peas. The wilderness at the bottom is very overgrown currants, raspberries and gooseberry's, I will have to deal with this once all the fruit is finished!

Amid the chaos there have been some nice surprises

a pink tree paeony and a Himalayan blue poppy. There are also lots and lots of ferns and dandelions which, although very photogenic, have a plan of domination and are trying to take over!

Now to get back to the fun task of trying to work out what is a weed and what the previous people might have planted then let take over...!

Linking to some of these fab linky parties!


  1. Wow, the vegie garden looks like it's well and truly under control. Enjoy all the produce!!! We've had a lot of rain this Summer and now our garden is looking like a jungle full of weeds... lots of work to be done, but I enjoy it.

  2. Oh my goodness! I am so impressed! Great job, Alison! I downloaded my free MyMemories Kit and am excited to use it! Thank you for hosting the giveaway!! :)


  3. Phew! You certainly have your work cut out for you there Alison! Your veggies look like they're doing well so far - and what beautiful flowers you found!
    I remember when we first moved up to Cairns, going through the garden in winter pulling things our we thought were dead, only to find others the same magically spring back to life when the rains came! It's all good fun learning about a new garden and plants! Enjoy yours!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a fabulous week!
