Veggie Garden 8th August

Okay, I messed up. My veggie garden is one big mess. And it’s giving out way more than we can eat…

As you can see the tomatoes are all over the garden. I should have bought sticks to keep them upright, but I thought the wouldn’t get so big. When I realised they were groing out of hand it was too late. They collapsed and grew all over the place.
But they are still producing lots and lots of tomatoes.

The lettuce is about 1 meter in height. It’s growing so fast we can’t eat enough of it. Even giving it away doesn’t help one bit. Next year I really need less lettuce.

The endives are shooting up too high too. But they are enjoyable. We’ve had endives yesterday and it was delicious.  I’ve dug out the potatoes as the plants were dying and have gotten 1.6 kilo from it. Some very tiny ones, some bigger. But very tasty.

The strawberries are getting less good. They are tiny and not as tasty as they were just a few weeks ago. And I think I ate all the raspberries. Not many have even made it inside the house. I ate them as I picked them 🙂

So, next year; less lettuce, less tomatoes, buy sticks for the tomatoes…

  1. Wow, what a plot. We need to plant less lettuce next year, we couldn’t keep up with it and it bolted. The plants were new last year. I do wonder if our really cold winter affected them. I am going to replant the runners this year.
