Seed Savers Photo Gallery

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.
