I never thought I would get my own organic food garden. My apartment took over three years to sell and during that time I had treatment for a third breast cancer. Then just when I thought it would never happen my the right buyer came along for my apartment and I found the perfect house for me. The time I spent waiting makes my garden even more precious.
Below are the paw paws I planted last Christmas, now growing tall and full of fruit.
Even the neighbors are surprised at the energy in the passion fruit vines. They now cover the whole side of the house and each evening at present I enjoy several sweet passion fruits.
This corner of my vegie plot has Italian parsley, lemon mint, apple mint, curly kale, rocket, dandelion and perennial lettuce. Oops almost missed the small red cabbage just beginning its journey of growth. I love companion planting my plants so there is a continual food supply. This does mean I need to keep feeding my soil. Last week for example I added a full bag of organic cow compost to this garden and the rains have really washed it in.
This is the bottom of my garden where I put grass cuttings. Have also added sweet potato and yams to this area as they tend to run. The yams are the lighter color. Not quite ready to dig yet, but will all be helping to develop the soil.
