I'm afraid you'll have to click on the panorama below as it's come out very small!
Starting on the left of the picture is the fruit cage (brambleberries, raspberries, cherry, gooseberry, red and black currants, loganberry, thornless blackberry, boysenberry, raspberries (5 types). In the bed that goes around the inside I'll be planting capsicums and a few tomatoes, and maybe cucumbers).
Outside of the cage there is another bed that has tomato, rocket, radish, chillies, peas, beans, sunflowers, irises and a peach tree (the bed goes along 2 sides of the wall)
Between the fruit cage and the first raised bed (before the first silver birch) is the no dig area with a random potato or 2, little yellow squash, a zucchini, and a bed with cucumbers (4 types), tomatillo, and some mixed bug attracting flowers.
Along the long fenceline there are tyres with potatoes, some onions and a few beans.
Next are 5 raised beds with (at the moment) carrots and leeks left to flower to attract bugs, a bed with beetroot, chinese broccoli, carrots, NZ spinach, perennial leek and a random strawberry.
Next is garlic (what's left, I've harvested a lot) and broccoli and silverbeet gone to seed - this will be replaced later with more summer crops. Then a few beds of tomatoes (we will probably have 40-45 plants in all), then a long bed with pumpkin, corn and beans (a 3 sisters bed Kelly!!). Oh, and a few lettuce in there too, and a bit more garlic.
Then by the water tank is a bed with asparagus and rhubarb, a bed of mixed walking and tree onions, a bed with cabbage and corn, and a bed with herbs. Oh and a passionfruit and another tomatillo. By the lattice fence is a bed with aloe vera, valerian and feverfew.
At the back of the garden you can see a hint of blue - the compost tumbler Jerry made - and that's where we put the extension to the garden that you'll see in the picture below.
This garden has potatoes, a range of beans (green and drying) a squash, several pumpkins, a few cucumbers, and a couple of tomatillos.
