Thanks. That would be great. Would live to see your entire garden. Mine got snowed on again and frozen. All done for this season. :(

The veggies are growing...we have some tiny, tiny chillies showing, the tomatoes are getting a fraction bigger, but of course still green, the strawberries are flowering and so are the capsicums...oh and the herbs and lettuce are getting bigger too

I will go and take a photo now

I will certainly take some more photos as they all grow, there has not been a great deal of change yet, but it is getting there

Kylie keep an eye on the peppers (chilli's) they tend to sprawl. that parsley will bolt toward the end of summer. enjoy it now chop some and freeze it.

Kylie, I love the planter. Folks, you can do the same. Go to garage sales and look for those ye olde glavanized tubs that your grandmother used to do her laundry in. Punch a few holes with a large nail in the bottom, cover with rocks and add your soil. If you are handy with crafts, you can paint the outside of the tub and even paint pics of the veggies. Here in the city, a lot of folks go to restaurants and get the five gallon white buckets that they get their pickles in and other foods. Do the same thing. Punch holes in the bottom, place more rocks, etc.

I am looking forward to the pics. We can all look with envy while we sit here in the cold of winter.

Thanks CJ

We have been using some of the parsley for meals, it is lovely..freezing sounds like a good idea!

Do you know if that is the same with coriander?

Wow! There is some serious gardening going on at your home. Great pics. Thank you so much. I must take a pic of where our garden plot is. It looks like a cemetary plot. It has gone unused for the past two years. How sad. I wish I could do it. But bending is out of the question for me. Everytime I bend over, I faint.
