Well, we're back and I'm keen to get back into the garden. It's so hot in the middle of the day so looks like it will be sunset gardening and morning if I get up before it gets too hot. Most of the garden has suffered from lack of water while we were away including the corn - attempt number three. Still hopeful that there might be one or two salvageable cobs on them. Dug up my first potatoes today. Four fairly decent sized of the cranberry red from one seed potato. Not a huge crop but happy as this is my first time growing. Still have five more lots of potatoes to dig up which aren't quite ready yet as they were planted later.
The beans which I thought I'd miss out on while we were away are only just starting to flower and have shot up and over the chicken wire trellis so very happy.
The cabbages and brocolli are looking rather munched and under a bit of heat stress. Thinking of resorting to some spray for the caterpillars (cabbage moth - little green ones) although I don't like to use sprays.
Overall, the peanuts and beans seem to be doing well. Looking at planting some rosellas soon if it's not too late.
Should be getting chickens fairly soon also - can't wait!
