Well I've been away from the garden for 2 weeks now. Went to Melbourne for the first week -> froze my butt off in 7 degree weather, came home for less than 12 hrs (ran around the garden and tried to get as much done as I could in the 2 hrs in the morning before I had to leave again) and then was off to Mackay for another week, leaving my garden in the (not so) tender loving care of my husband. If you look back on past blogs, this is a mistake I just keep on making.
Lots of other things were very wilty looking. First thing I did today was water everything. I need to go put some seasol on those tomatos to see if they can be rescued. Fortunately, my other tomato patch was still looking good and I did a big harvest this morningThe mulberry tree is still looking amazing. I harvested a 1 Litre ice cream container full of those and strawberries this morning.
Flowers are going bonkers. I hope they are all still looking good in 3 weeks when you guys come over. Won't be planting hollyhock again - It is TOO BIG!!
This is my verge garden which is now legal according to BCC :)
These are the sweet peas. I'm thinking they need to come out soon. They have all podded up and are overgrowing everything. I'll let a few pods go fully ripe and they will come up next year.
At least my curcubit patch survived alright. I have spaghetti squash, tromboncino, ronde de nice and regular zucchini in here. Planning to get some reo mesh from B and join it with the trellis and the fence so the trom's can keep growing.
My first tromMy bean tower also is looking great. This one is a mix of purple king and Blue lake.
Happy gardening guys.
