Cats are not helpful in the garden! Pip kept me company for a while but mostly he just tangled his lead around the garlic then sat his furry fat backside down on it!
I got a few more things planted today – started with the beetroot
I just popped a number of new seeds into the patch and am hoping for the best. The limp looking ones here are actually growing ok – new shoots showing so they might perk up alright.
There were quite a number of good sized self seeded tomatoes in here too – thought I could rehome them
The area I wanted to put them in was rife with twitch so it took a little time to clear a suitable spot.
Moving right along to the failed broccoli patch:
Its a relatively new raised bed, so I am puzzled about where the potatoes came from
They are doing well so I left them in the bed – accidentally dug up a couple of spuds too
The punnets of onion and leek I planted pre Japan were going well so I thought I might as well put them in here. I won’t have broccoli ready for a while… probably if I plant some now then I can put them in where the garlic is as I hope to get that out in the next month.
Happily fit in all the onion (brown and white) then dug up another little patch for the leek.
Lots of my lettuce is about going to seed, so I planted another pot full so I can start again. Going to be annoying to have tomatoes ripen and no lettuce!
The cucumbers are getting visibly bigger each day. Can’t wait to add them to the salad
And some capsicum happening!
I let the two broody chooks out of chook-purgatory. They were so happy to be out! However they were on the nest again tonight when I closed them up – I did drag them out (much to their disgust) and perched them on the roost. Dunno if they stayed there. But they will be back in the trailer tomorrow if they persist!
Hope your day was great!
