Even though we had a very hot summer, as soon as the temperatures started to drop the veggie garden in the shade house took off for a late but sustained productive burst. The hard work getting the structure of the area right is starting to show results, and what results!
So this summer we came one step closer to our goal with a glut of tomatoes, cucumbers and chilli and a goodly number of eggplant, sweet potato, pumpkin, zucchini and squash. Of course there is still much to learn and the rampant tomato plants choked out rhubarb, asparagus and countless other smaller species so some location specific changes will come next year. Its a fantastic feeling to see the desert so verdant though… even if in a small, well controlled area… hopefully its a sign of the future to come!
