Cabbages growing at the Seed Savers garden at Capparoe.
The poly tunnel, used mainly for growing tomatoes.
A dense bunch of green tomatoes growing in the poly tunnel. (August 1999).
These two photos are from our 'urban garden' in Dublin, a
garden which is densely packed with a wide variety of food crops. Wild alpine
strawberries provide ground cover and we even have a fig tree growing and
fruiting in the sunniest spot shielded from the wind. Space is at a premium.
One of the photos below shows the consequences...
Left: Our Valentine vegetables. What happens when carrots are sown too close to each other...
Right: A few radishes grown in soil enriched with seaweed and having a superb tangy flavour.
