Varsity Lakes Permaculture Garden Metamorphosis

Finally dry enough to check out my patch at Varsity Lakes Community Garden.

Basil, chillis, red beans, Brazilian and Ceylon Spinach are growing with vigor in my permaculture styled patch.

Also lavender, dill, society garlic, carrots and even some late heirloom broccili have survived the difficult conditions and are adding to the available food in my garden.

Have really worked my soil following permaculture guidelines and it is giving back strong plants in this difficult weather.

Some gardeners have however taken different options for February.

One of these patches has a cover crop and the other appears cleared.

The permaculture plants are however thriving in the plot below.

The  gardener below is growing taro a strong permaculture staple along with New Guinea spinach, purslane,  Brazilian spinach, coco yam, corn and basil.

Some tasty and nutritious meals ahead for the owner of this patch.

Love your garden images. I can't wait to get started in mine.

I'm stopping by from the Tuesday Hop.
Have a great day!

I envy you that you have so much to harvest. We are still in winter here, whatever winter it is. The temps have been warmer than normal.

Calling by as another Outdoor Wednesday participant, it was interesting to read about your garden.
