Companion Pile

To the untrained eye this probably looks like a big pile of weeds.  Originally that's what it was - my dumping place for weeds from the garden.  They slowly composted down and now it has turned into the most productive part of the garden!  The whole "garden" is a tribute to companion planting, only nothing has actually been planted... it has all just sprung up from the big pile of weeds.  If you look closely you can see not only millions of mini tomatoes, but bitter gourds, pumpkin plants and even some morning glory flowers.  It may not be the most beautiful garden in the world, but until the first frost hits it will be staying exactly as it is - minus a few kgs of vegetables!!
