    We currently have passion fruits in our garden. We previously had pumpkins and others.

    What do you have in your veggie garden?

    Rampant pumpkins, some kind of melon, basil, oregano and parsley. We'd love a passionfruit, it's on the 'house things to do list'. But our 'house things to do list' is very low on our actual 'things to do list' Our front yard looks like bogan tenants live here atm. :oops:

    Pumpkin, carrots, beetroot, zucchini, rocket and mixed lettuce. Passion fruit, figs, macadamia nuts, apricots, blueberries, nectarines, peaches, apples (fuji and granny) mangoes, avocados, miracle fruit, lemons and limes.

    Still need to add the herb garden, plums, cherries, mandarins, oranges, raspberries, kiwi fruit and two more veggie patches. Although I feel I'm missing some fruit trees that are on my list

    I was going to say weeds. The only plant I manage to keep alive.

    I have dreams of a herb garden along with some potatoes as it has the highest bang for buck. The rest, meh.

    Passion vine fruit grows like a weed... And it will cover up everything around it!

    Not big enough. Everything is dwarf/semi dwarfing apart from Mac nuts and mangoes as they were presents. Only a seedling so far, was going to get the dwarf variety from Daley's, still tossing up if I should just pull it out when they are available. Future FIL had two in his backyard that are massive, been meaning to read if they can be kept productive as 3-4m trees. I see them as too much work but the fiancee wanted them.

    Yep, I wanted the dwarf mango. Friends are just too nice knowing I wanted one and now I need to grow it.

    Daley's has too many varieties of things. Makes it hard to pick, I want them all!

    I will post pics tomorrow morning. Last year was the first I time I prepared three vegetable patches. I got so many tomatoes that I made passata to last for a year. This year my tomatoes are not as good. I put some manure down but perhaps not enough. I think I'll have to rotate the crops next year. This year I put three more vegetable patches. Two are full of tomato plants and the other has all the pumpkin and honey dew melon. Last year I used no fertiliser. This year I used some manure and some fertiliser that a horticulturist recommended. I'll tell you the name tomorrow. The fruit trees are spread throughout the back yard. I wanted a completely edible garden out the back. This year is the first time my pomegranate has done anything, and it has three pomegranates. Last year was the first time for the blood orange. It made five little oranges and they weren't very sweet. This year it has about 15, and I'm hoping that they'll be sweeter. I especially love the mulberry tree, but the finches discovered it and the nectarine tree this year. Next year I'll put a net over the nectarine tree.
