Comfrey, peppadew, carrot, oregano
buckwheat, broccoli, cabbage, squash and yucca
Mushrooms. They’re popping up EVERYWHERE. Too bad we don’t know if they’re edible or not. Wish they were though.
Groundcover that grew from a few tufts we threw down, and the trees that shelter part of the abode from the strong south west wind.
A fence weaved two years ago that now provides great shelter to some trees we’re keeping in bags for later planting.
Morning glory self-seeded and loving the fence. Outhouse toilet in background.
Keyhole bed with a lot happening! Marigolds, peppadews, Kale, wild dagga, etc. Yellowood in foreground.
Keyhole again – sweet potatoes on the left. Strawberries pictured. Note mulching.
Paprika peppers and marigolds. The marigolds serve sooooooo many purposes. Medicinal, micro-climate, beneficial to soil for most plants, pest detractor.
The orchard. Again, a lot happening. Citrus tree in foreground struggling; all citrus have battled here, while the peach trees have done really well.
1000 liter water tank etc.
Full frontal! We don’t do the mowing. Rather use a brushcutter to cut paths where needed. But the land-owners like the grass short.
Mostly sweet potatoes, clearly ravaged by a caterpillar or grasshopper or locust. Etc etc etc.
Mainly comfrey, planted into the trench that borders the lower part of the raised bed. Water collects in the trench, and the comfrey loves it. Excellent plant to have in the garden – so many uses.
Circling from front right: Nasturtium (aphid collector! Sacrificial plant. Also medicinal), Lobster claw ground cover, comfrey again, broccolli, squash, old sweet pepper plants, cabbage.
Green feast peas sprouting, and Buckwheat. The twiggy sticks are to help the peas climb.
