Winter Vegetables

Unfortunately I can't get to carried away with growing veggies this winter because our very loving Labrador likes to eat things straight from the plant - I have to be careful what I plant in the back garden.

Hopefully by next Summer we will have some of these raised garden beds installed in the front yard so that we can have crops that don't get eaten by the dog for next summer.

I did however throw some Butternut pumpkin seeds into the garden and they have produced what looks to be the beginnings of a bumper crop that will see us through winter.

I am also very tempted to try my hand at growing some broccoli.

The other thing I need to do is put some legumes in the end of the garden that had the eggplants growing in it for the past few months. Need to re- nitrogen the soil!
