Garden State

And by that I mean the state of the garden, of course. Although, Victoria is sometimes called the Garden City, but that is neither here nor there.

Look how much it's grown! From this:

To this:

It's actually bigger now, as this photo is a few weeks old, but it's also uglier because August is the month of yellowing leaves and runaway tomato branches.

My zucchinis worked!

This was probably the most delicious zucchini I have ever eaten, although the texture was very woody. It wouldn't have been good raw, but it was fantastic cooked! I think I'll only get one or two more from the plants - the raccoon raids severely diminished my crop. I'm still mad about that.

I've also got some peas; enough for a few salads or something. I knew I wouldn't get many so I'm happy with that. Something happened to my green beans and they never got more than a few inches tall, but there are a few tiny beans there that can be snacked on. I wonder if this cold, wet summer didn't agree with beans. My tomatoes are doing well, provided we get enough sun to ripen them all. The Sweet 100 is living up to its name but the Super Fantastic is really only moderately fantastic.

Also, this:

I accidentally transplanted it out of my mum's garden, and I wasn't sure if it was going to live, but I'm so glad it did. Hopefully it will spread and I'll get a few more next year.
