Size Isn't Everything!

Alas the Tidy Garden doesn't have the acreage we'd like, but that hasn't stopped us cramming every living specimen of plant known to man (and woman) EVER in the garden we have.

Tomatoes
As space is limited, when it comes to planting up our crops, everything goes in pots. And me being a bit sentimental about not being able to discard weak seedlings, EVERYTHING gets a chance to grow, so we have lots of pots.

 
This year we're having a go at cucumbers.....

 
I have no idea if these trellis will work but there was no space to let them sprawl along the ground. We'll wait n' see...

Peppers

More tomatoes

Strawberries

Runner Beans

A bit of everything here...Radish, Lettuce, Raspberries, Mint...

Spares...to be re-homed

It's not what you've got, it's what you do with it!

Your garden is lovely, Jane. I love your use of pots. You've arranged every specimen known to man (and woman) in such a pretty and tidy fashion. :-) I'm inspired to use more pots in the garden now.
Happy gardening!

I love your trellis idea. I grew some French Beans in the PT last year - never again, they grew like triffids and took over the entire tunnel. This year I'm growing them outside but although we have acres both my outdoor veg beds are run over with that blasted weed, Horse tail. So I'm going to put my beans in pots like you - fingers crossed it works.

Haha, true that! That is quite the container garden you have going on there!

Love your container veggie garden Jane - you should get some good crops from that lot - although I must admit I have only grown peppers once successfully outdoors.

Good going, Jane. You're ahead of me on runners - I only planted mine out a couple of days ago. And your peppers are 10x the size of mine. Sheesh. D

Hey, I do the same. Trouble is, the pots are taking over now. I've got way too many.
