Our frontyard is a bit messy at the moment. If you walk in through the driveway this is the first patch which hot fiery red chilies, bright colours of African Marigold blooms, Da cheong chae and purple giant mustards interplanted with broccolies will welcome you.
As you walk in further...
What is covering the ground?
Sweet potato plants.
I don't really think it is still ready to be harvested,
but I might be behind schedule for growing cool season vegetables in this area.
This patch received the most sunlight compare to other areas in the garden.
Then this perennial Lebanese eggplant turn to welcome you.
It was growing in pots in 2010summer, last spring I re-planted this plant in this patch.
It grown twice taller and bear more fruits last 2011 summer than 2010.
I was thinking of clearing this patch because it was getting colder and it has stop fruiting. However, warm weather last week have trigger the plant to bloom. This week, we see some fruit developing. So the plant stays there a little bit longer.
As you near the frontdoor, this patch is growing volunteer potatoes (nicola). The plants decided for me what to grow in this patch, so I let them do what they want. I just sowed a row of bush peas at the middle which has just sprouted. At the back, hollyhocks, when are you going to bloom almost a year now? Hopefully next spring.
Have a nice week!
