This is new - I started planting around Christmas with leftover tomatoes from my market stall.

It is situated over the septic tank overflow trenches, not very romantic, but they have constant water and nutrients. In my garden at the moment are - tomatoes- cherry, roma and some large varieties, rockmelon, rhubarb, horseradish, calendula, dwarf beans, tarragon, garlic, peas (waiting to sprout) mignonette lettuce, curly and italian parsley, gourds, coriander, lemon grass, chillis, peppers, basil, and asparagus. The tomatoes have turned into a jungle - Ive never had them grow like this before, so I planted too close. The watermelon grows 1 1/2 inches a day, and there are at least 5 melons growing madly. My son checks them twice a day to see how big they are.
In my ornamental garden I have cherry, loquat, lemon, orange, mandarin and nectarine trees, more tomatoes and chillies,spring onions, thyme, chives, sage, then I have mulberries, almonds and apples in the orchard.

How yummy and fun. Your little one is very happy.

Oh, I wish I had so much space to grow all that! I have a small garden plot. No room for watermelon, not to mention fruit and nut trees! Very nice.
