The Orchard Vegetables!

Hey everyone, last year I planted a few epic tahitian buttenut plants around the garden. The issue with pumpkin plants is they are very messy and require large areas of space to grow.

My landlady was not too impressed with the amount of space required to grow these and suggested I plant them at the top of the compost heap, which for a few weeks was a good idea.

The problem with the compost heap is that it needs to be turned on a regular basis. So the landlady again told me to move them and so I did. To the orchard upon her suggestion.

Tomatoes as below self planted and germinated. Nature surely is pure gold!

Lastly watering my carrots most of which have started to seed, which is just fine to harvest and plant again and so the perpetual cycle of life continues!

The pumpkin, if you let it, will outgrow the grapes on the trellis. You've seen mine, I think.

A rotted straw bale is I another method I'm dying to try out for growing the pumpkin vine in.

Great idea brother will give it a bash!
