    Default What fruit and/or veg do you grow?

    I have been getting into growing vegies the last 12 months. I have slowly been adding to our 'collection' and I now have:

    - a lemon tree (still small but has some buds on it yay!)
    - strawberries
    - zucchini
    - broccolini
    - broadbeans
    - passionfruit
    - spring onions
    - garlic

    and today we added
    - sweetcorn
    - tomatoes
    - red capsicum

    I also have heaps of herbs.

    It looks like a lot, but some of them are still maturing.

    I'd love to hear what other people have if you would like to share!

    I've only ever managed to grow cherry tomatoes and parsley. Everything else seems to get eaten by bugs or just dies!

    Currently we grow spinach, rosemary, capsicum, cherry tomatoes and strawberries.
    We are hoping when we move into our new house we will be able to have a larger one.
    We have grown numerous things over the yrs like chillies, lots of different herbs etc.
    we really do miss it.

    I love parsley! I grow it too. My cherry tomatoes died last time I tried them. I've gone with regular tomatoes this time.

    My Dad told me to plant marigolds around my vegie patch as the bugs don't like them. Seems to be helping actually. Although my broccolini leaves are getting eaten (but not the broccolini lol).

    It's hard when you don't have much room hey. We only have a courtyard out the back, but DH built us a planter box. I have also replaced some ugly shrubs with vegies.

    Also, we have a shared driveway with the people behind us, so a small amount of shared garden there too. Our neighbours have agreed to let me plant vegies there and we will share the produce.

    I'm already trying to think how I can make more garden space. I am obsessed! haha
