Yes this is a photo of my vegetable garden!

perennial veggies in July garden

It may look more like a flower border but the photo on top of this blog was taken last July of my vegetable garden.  I am growing perennial vegetables in a polyculture and, amongst other things, there are in this photo – wild rocket, oca, yam, wild chicory, garlic and wild cabbage.   The flowers are self seeded, and I think are self heal and hawksbeard.

Update March 2015 

I have changed the photograph as I no longer live in the same place.  And I have also changed the header pictures on the blog.  The photo below taken in the Borderland Garden last August features yacon, fennel, cosmos, calendula, skirret, oca, borage, Welsh onion, burdock and others and gives an shows how the garden has become even less like a conventional vegetable garden over time!

About Anni Kelsey

I love forest gardens and forest gardening, nature, reading and everything good about being alive. I have written two books - the garden of equal delights (2020) - about the principles and practice of forest gardening; and Edible Perennial Gardening (2014) - about growing perennial vegetables in polycultures, which is basically forest gardening concentrating on the lower layers.
