But wait there's more
Hang on a minuite, it must be Wednesday somewhere in the world.
Some more of the Wednesday walk through.
First up is the white Italian garlic bed with the purple podded peas at the back.
Very happy with the progress here.

Some people think they are cute but, as you can see in the photos below, the trouble I have to go to to grow a few lettuce, (not to mention having all my carrot tops eaten off) I hate them.
These are the drunken women lettuce I've been growing for a while now.
The aforementioned possum has had more enjoyment from them than I have. Bloody, bloody bloody........bloody possums.
These are my Red Iceberg lettuce which I am especially proud of.
The possum got a few munches on them but I've had the rest and it's a great little lettuce for sandwiches.
Beetroot and some more lettuce which the possum hasn't found yet for some reason.
Climbing snow peas in flower.
I'm growing about 6 plants in 3 week intervals so I can hopefully have a continuous supply of snow peas until it gets too hot for them.
So far so good.
An eclectic collection of brassicas which includes red cabbage, kohlrabi, Cauliflower, 'Violet Sicilian' and Broccoli, 'Romanesco'. I think there is a normal drumhead cabbage in there as well as a normal Broccoli.
Cheers and happy veggie gardening,
