May the roof above us never fall in
And may we good companions beneath it never fall out.

What else is growing?

Lettuce - Great Lakes. Planted from Digger's seed, it wilted like mad when we transplanted it from thewindow boxes on the deck to make room for the tomato seedlings. It is astonishing how well it bounces back.

Herbs: Oregano, Mint, Thyme, Lemon Thyme, Rosemary, Vietnamese Mint, Parsley, Tarragon, Lemongrass and Sage

Grapevine. We are again amazed by the vigorous growth that emerges from this bare woody log in Spring. The grapes were too thick skinned to really enjoy eating last year, and I really want to make use of them somehow this season. Grappa anyone?

Asparagus. Something, as renters, we decided against because it takes a few years to establish. But what the heck...

Last year's Watercress we grew from seed, self seeded.

First year blueberries.

Divine smelling Corsican Mint (foreground). This has doubled in size in less than a month.

Propagation tray: Sorrel, Capsicum, Red Cherry Tomato, Flame Coral Pea; and emerging: Basil and Parsley. We cover the tray with a clear plastic lid overnight and in cold weather.

Potatoes - Kipfler and Dutch Cream. Something is nibbling on them...

Passionfruit - Nelly Kelly.

Chilli - Tobago (from Diggers seed)

Eggplant - Listada di Gandia (from Diggers seed). We have two of these in the garden bed aswell, but I wanted to experiment with one in a pot. I'm hoping it will appreciate the extra heat.

Beans - Green Stringless (from Diggers seed) and Borlotti (from Franchi seed). We sowed a second lot this weekend which is why the area isn't mulched. The sticks are to stop the birds from digging them up!
