Wood Chip Garden in full growth

 Our wood chip garden is flourishing big time :) Here you can see Beets, Chard, Lettuce and some Spinach going into seeds for the next year sowings.
 In the next photo one can see newly sown beets (second sowing) and sweet corn,
 Cucumbers are growing very well. The first 2 sowings were eaten by the slugs but after I applied the Iron Phosphate pellets (which are used in organic farming) the slug issue disappeared and now they are doing very well.
 Kale is doing great this year thanks to the insect net and the iron phosphate pellets. 
 Panoramic shot of our approx 400 square meter wood chip garden. Can you see any weeds? Exactly my point ;)
Leek is also growing well, still small but its getting there.
Beets and Carrots; fresh and organic and as local as it can get :)
Garlic is harvested and so are the onions :) 
We have planted many flowering plants for the bees this year all from Sunflowers, Phacelia, Borage, Calendula, Tagetes, White Clover and we have also left a huge part to grow wild.
