Vegetable Growing Challenge

 I have joined the Yates vegetable growing challenge this year. I am of the mind that it isn't really a challenge because I love growing and I love sharing about what I grow. It is free to join up and sometimes there is even a free seed offer or two. This challenge only has the requirements of making at least three blog entries on their site and growing the produce from seed or seedling. I don't even need to win a prize in the challenge to feel like a winner. The picture above is my 'before' picture (and my official before post at Yates here). If you spy really hard, you can even see me in the garden. Thanks to Tim for playing photographer today. It just so happens that the best spot to take pictures of the garden is on top of the 20 000 litre rain water tank and I am too chicken to dare climb up there.

The garden is never completely bare so this is as 'before' as it gets. There is still broccoli, peas, snow peas, spring onion, carrots, broadbeans, garlic, carrots, silverbett, turnips, cauliflower and the ever-present asparagus producing. But my spring plantings are what will be the focus of the challenge. It's worth having a go even if just to spread the growing word a bit further.

I see you! lol!

Sounds like a great challenge Tracy :) Good Luck!

Do you water the garden with rain water? I would like to use our storage on the garden, that would cut down the water bill and improve the garden no end...

Good luck with your garden! Our's will be prepared for Fall growing veggies this next 2 weeks.

Me too! I hope you do well and can't wait to see all your lovely produce. It looks like a ripper spot for good growing.

Cheers - Joolz

That sounds like the best sort of Challenge, when it isn't really going to be too challenging. Have fun. I'm just off now to make your biscuits.
