Vegetable Garden

Yesterday morning I made a new vegetable bed which is not on my plot, but behind the fence. This part of the land belongs to the town, but it is not used for any purpose. It is secluded and away from the view of people being divided from the town park by the green fence of Forsythias. I keep it clear from the weeds anyway. Last year I decided to make some beds and plant the vegetables on that part of the land too.

In my regular vegetable garden, some five days ago I planted the tomatoes grown from seeds. The courgettes are sown directly on site. I use the edges of the beds to sow the salads for further transplanting. 

The pea plants are tall again though they are supposed to be low growing variety 'Wonder of America'. I always put some branches into the soil that serve as the support.

The French bean 'Blau Hilde' is growing nicely. I made the sturdy support in the Spring to keep the lush growing plants in the place. One I am looking forward to dark purple pods of this heirloom variety.

The beetroots 'Cylindra' and 'Boltardy' are looking good.

  1. Will your local Town Council not object to you using common land to build a veg-bed without their permission?
