We went away to see my folks. Whilst we did have a house sitter, we did not have a garden sitter. So, how bad did it get? Well, I did not have much hope to find anything alive by the time I come back, so I had set up the bed with some hardy plants and had fully intended to plant green manure. How did I go, I hear you saying.
Well, the front garden looked something like this. it wasn't long before hubby grabbed the lawnmower and filled the 3 compost bins.
The front veggie beds were all but dead. What did not die, got dutifully scratched and eaten by the chooks.
It looks like I have a clean slate to start over. Yay! Let's get planting.
I am trialling this new product called Greenbelt biofertiliser, we got at wholesale price. If it turns out any good, I will organise a delivery for the March garden visit.
A quick rummage on local gardening facebook pages provided some free strawberry runners, lots of them. I am now on the lookout for more pipes to recycle for the other 25 plants...
On another front, we finally split our beehive and are happy to report that the hive was very healthy inside. Bees are frantically rebuilding in one of Rhys' new boxes.
All in all, we are on track for a great garden visit in March. Thinking up additional activities. I have a few in mind : beeswax wraps or live dreamcatcher?
