Introducing...... my garden. Garden, you, you garden

Last October I joined the growing movement of Lets get growing..Tauranga's allotment style community gardens.  I rent a plot and plant and grow to my hearts content.  Since then we've had fresh everything! tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, more than I would know what to do with, but the beauty of community style gardening is that you share and swap vegetables.  I have learnt to grow things I'd only tasted in restaurants, sorrell, celeriac and yellow beetroot.  My experience has even inspired me to grow most of the produce for our upcoming wedding...I'm planting potatoes, I have celeriac growing and next week I'll be putting down peas and broad beans.

It's a little worse for wear at the moment thanks to my busy life and the changing seasons but heres a pic...currently stocked with silverbeet, sorrell, romanesco brocoli, red cabbage, leeks and pak choi.
