Thanks Elaine for the advice. When they were seedlings we had them covered but as they have gotten bigger the white cabbage moth seems to have left them alone. So fingers crossed!

It was such a glorious morning after last night's storm that I had to capture some of the burgeoning aliveness and growth.Edibles all.…Continue
I had an interesting day fixing a string trellis for the golden snow peas which are growing tall, faster than I expected, transplanted some tomato seedlings into 10 cm plots, planted more bean seeds and planted out some pattypan squash plants and some lettuce seedlings. I finally trimmed back to the ground the very bitter tommy toe ( it has bok choi and lettuce nearby so can't rip out completely). Some of the lettuce has bolted already which is also frustrating - it's not that hot yet…Continue

Well the last few months have been somewhat challenging in my personal life with an emergency trip back home and coming back to a rather sad garden or rather what was left of it.

Looking at the layout I think I can fit in another citrus next to the lemon and I'd like to squeeze in another fig…Continue
Hi everyone. I'm a long time lurker and have finally joined. I guess I mainly keen to document my gardening experiences for my own future reference. I've been a sporadic gardener all my adult life - currently I will have a year or so of regular gardening then one of my other interests take over. Then my garden gets weed- overtaken until my out of town in-laws come and visit and rescue me from the jungle. The only permanent features of my garden have been some basic herbs, six chickens, a…Continue
The Lemon, Lemonade and Mandarin look like they wanna make lots of babies. I'm happy about that. It looks like this is the time of year for citrus, Lemonade particularly.
So, the corn crop went in yesterday. All good.
Cherry tomatoes are finally starting to produce some fruit again. Cabbage getting ready. Jeez, even a Cauliflower. Now that summer is here: I'm getting 4 eggs a day. The greens are starting to perform again. It's Quiche and…Continue
The Spring garden takes off!
A polycultural jungle.
Very little weed infestation. No bug problems at the moment (touch wood).
As well as…
