I like to plant one whole bed of tomatoes with some eggplants and capsicums. In previous years I've settled on 32 tomato plants, 6 capsicums and 10 eggplants. I also, in previous years, grew everything from seed and would crank up the propogator in August for the October/November/December planting of the heat loving and frost hating vegies. This year, I have not been growing from seed. I have purchased seedlings at fetes and garden nurseries. I will probably go back to propogation next year. It is much cheaper, you get a greater range of vegetables in seeds and though a lot of work it is very satisfying.
Here is a shot of the beds being prepared for the tomatoes.
In the bottom right hand corner are my treats! I've been looking at the Digadoo tools for ages. I finally decided that after 3 years of consistent vegetable growing in our community garden, I was here to stay. I didn't want to lash out and treat myself if my vegetable growing was some whimsical, fly by night activity soon to be replaced by another worthy but whimsical cause.
Look at all this digging I've done.
