The veggies are growing...

 Well here they are the veggie garden photos.. 
In the first photo we have carrots at the front.. Mixed in the row with them were the seed did not sprout we have some lettuce. At the back is green beans they have nearly finished now but have fed us a lot.. We planted the seed really late so we were happy to get anything out of them. Few stragglers of Zucchini and a pile of chicken Manure ready for spreading when the beans and the Zucchini come out.  

Above is the Broccoli at the front and then we have some more carrots.They germinated much better than the other ones no gaps in these 3 rows. More lettuce at the back on the left. We pop lettuce anywhere there is a spot.. On the right at the back are onions.. They don't look much but we always get a good crop of onions.. Only just finished the ones we grew last year so we did well. Thinking we maybe might put in some more. I have some red onions growing in the little green house. We have all those to plant in a few weeks.

 Not much happening in the broad beans yet but got a close up of them just coming out of the ground for you.. With a little bit of coriander photo bombing. We have coriander growing in all the corners of the veggie garden.. The chickens and the rabbits love it. 

Look at my Lemon tree there is lemons everywhere. You would not think I have already picked 2 buckets of lemons off it. They are a bit small but they are full of juice. The bees must have been really busy.. Will have to give it a prune after the lemons all come off as it is dragging on the ground. I don't want the branches to break, so will give it a bit of a shape up. 

So day 8 of the #90daysofblogging accomplished. If you would like to pop over and see what the others joining in on this challenge are up to today..
