our garden {part 2}

a little later than anticipated, but here is the 2nd little glimpse into our garden. it's come on a long way since {part 1}. we have had such beautiful weather over the last few weeks and planted lots more flowers so it's looking lovely. I think we must have lots and lots of friendly insects because we don't seem to be having any problems (even the slugs don't seem to be doing too much damage). We grow everything organically so pest control to us is planting flowers and herbs to encourage beneficial insects.

1. buttercups, spinach, mixed salad leaves (rocket, red giant mustard, green wave mustard & mizuna kyoto), mange tout
2. bordeaux spinach
3. bordeaux spinach and desiree potatoes
4. mixed salad leaves and edible flowers
5. lettuces (red & green salad bowl, paris island cos, ice queen, lollo rosso, lollo bionda & corn salad) and cavolo, calabrese & tagetes

we still have more to do on our garden, lots more to plant and lots more to show you, so there will be a {part 3} coming soon.
