Hello! How is everyones first week of 2018 going?
I treated myself to a trailer load of mushroom compost today!!
Now I can move on to some more planting and feed up some areas.
But I really had a lovely day digging up all my garlic! (and the extra bonus is a whole spare plot!)
It was a mixed bag of sizes, but overall I am pretty happy.
Think I have enough?
I have put them all on the back veranda to dry off for a few days, then I will be able to brush the dirt/mud off more easily before hanging them inside upstairs to dry properly.
I weeded a plot at the back of the hothouse yesterday…
Just enough room for a few more tomatoes
Dumped in a barrow load of mushroom compost and mulched with the last of the seaweed grass (yup – next trip out with the trailer will be to restock on that!)
The self seeded ones I have just recently noticed are doing quite well here too… weeded them and fed them some compost.
Cherry plums slowly starting to ripen!
Of the four unenthusiastic apple cucumber plants… I have only one cucumber developing!
Looks like I can quit buying potatoes at the supermarket!! Yay! I love new potatoes (some of these were on the dinner plate tonight, steamed and served with butter!)
The cucumbers are slow… but mostly steady enough to keep up with what we are eating each night.
Enough tomatoes now to make our favourite side dish of stuffed tomatoes (centres just scooped out and mixed with breadcrumbs, garlic salt & fresh herbs – under the grill for 5 minutes!!)
Loving the fresh food!
