Chickpeas, carrot and more

 Planted some chickpeas, to use as 'green manure'.
carrot - before harvest
baby carrot
3 of my chicken, they are no longer 'babies'.  We collect 3 to 4 eggs daily, occasionally 5.

I have no idea how I am going to collect the tomatoes in the middle of this bush.

We planted some potatoes as well.

We have been picking the tomotoes since early Jan. Notice how some are green, while others are ripe?  That's the beauty of growing your own.  We get to pick and eat tomatoes over a long period rather than harvesting all at once.  This is batch 1, batch 2 has started producing fruit, batch 3 has just started flowering.
First batch - 3 tomato plants
This is from the same plants above. They are still flowering and producing tomatoes as we picked them.  The later ones are getting smaller, guess the nutrient in the soil is depleting.

The big picture

I took this picture late Dec, we have since harvested and ate them all!  This is the dwarf beans, we still have climbing beans to harvest.

Have been harvesting zucchini as well.

I waited for a very long time, this is the first sign of watermelon!
