Here are some more pics of FIMBY people, gardens and vegies. Enjoy!

 

they taste good and look even better

They're spunky aren't they?

The artichokes that is!

Bandicooting the first new potatos for our FIMBY feast. Christmas morning harvest, for making spicy and pungent bouquets!
At Jodie and Brendan's the kids got stuck into it! After all the heavy work, Charlotte shows great delicacy planting broad beans!
The first developing vegies are eagerly watched. A well trained baby red fig tomato.
Wendy and Thomas's psychedelic planting!
Carol planting beetroot in West Hobart sunshine
Dave with his enormous marrow. Nice basil too! Dave with his big squash. Theme here?
A very violet sicilian.
A developing prize! This ones a bit shy, hiding behind leaves.
Kirsten and Paul grew a Dr Suess kale. Rosemary's beautiful healthy snow peas.
The toms are taking ages to ripen this year (Feb 2009), just starting to get some at last. Self sown sunflower, pumpkin, spuds near the compost heap.
Workin' hard at Jo's place, Parattah David's way of keeping the cats off baby carrots.
We came, we saw, we pickled! Honk if you love FIMBY.
Shallots, coriander, spring onions look good in Oct. The bees LOVE broad bean flowers.
Suzi puts a FIMBY pumpkin to good use! Look closely to spot the dynamite chillies too.
Beautiful baby coriander in Gail's garden in July, just planted in new raised bed.

(Above) and here they are; newly planted chilliwack and willamette raspberry canes.

 

 

Shortest day of the year, capsicums still ok on the bush. Better pick them or frost will get 'em! Garden construction and artwork brought to you by the tip shop scavengers!
Mmmm garlic! plus spinach in foreground (just babies), and green manure and brassicas behind. Spinach babies grown a bit, sturdy garlic stems.
Close up of green manure crop in June 09. It will add nitrogen and organic matter to the soil. We finally had a sunny day to plant! Juliet and Elizabeth confirming what seed is what.
October and spuds are up and mulched. leeks in background are almost starting to send up flowers. These romanescu broccoli are very fractal. V easy to grow, and taste good too!

 

We're delighted to be collaborating with chef Luke Burgess, who uses FIMBY gardeners' excess vegies (and weeds!) in preparations for his amazing gourmet dinner parties.

Luke reckons that onions and lovage are a match made in heaven, and in this dish he's used chickweed and pea flowers as a garnish.

 

 

At Thomas and Wendy's we planted sunflowers amongst the beans. They're happy companions, with the beans using the sunflower stems to climb. Then beans are growing well, and the 6 foot sunnies are gorgeous and enjoy the nitrogen fix from the beans.
Another sunflower shot - this time from Carol. Drive up Gourlay St to see these amazing giants!
David's beans all in a row . . . Bees in the giant pumpkin flower. Go bees!
Shelly and Talia hard at work / play! Wendy &Thomas's jungle - you can hide in it now!
