Veggie Patch and Garden

Since the weather has (slowly) become warmer down here in Tassie we've been getting stuck into the garden.  We've spent the last few weekends weeding everywhere and planting new veggies in our veggie patch.  The grass has also gotten very brown and crunchy very quickly actually in the last couple of days it has gotten really bad.  It's a dry and hot day here today so the veggie garden will need an extra big soaking this afternoon.

Raspberries

Cape Gooseberry

Broccoli and Cabbage Mix

Radishes and Parsley

Tomatoes

Potatoes

Strawberries

Elderflower   
 I love having a veggie patch, I still want to add a few more things, this summer I'm really looking forward to making some elderflower and raspberry cordial and not to mention chocolate covered raspberries yummm!! It's also great for kids, Master E loves to help plant, look after, and harvest the veg and fruit, he even has his own little gardening set and watering can.

Do you keep a veggie patch? What are your fave veggies or fruit to grow?
