The Rain - What is everyone planting now.

Hasn't this rain been wonderful. It has made a tremendous difference to our place. Where all the Grass had died we now have Green & everything else has come back from being drought stressed. My Figs are so happy we even have babies on one tree for the first time.

I have been very quiet on the Blog front, almost 2 years quiet, due to not wanting and not being allowed (OT Rules) in the Veg Patch until my garden path had been replaced (due to bulging tree roots), and I have been suffering Drought Depression.

Well my New Year's Resolution was to not obey the Rules and just get over the rest. I thought if I organized a Garden Visit for March that would give me the incentive to get into it. The Path is still not repaired though I don't go to the garden unless Graham or someone else is close by.

What I have planted - I have been busy cleaning up the Herb Garden and putting in a few new Herbs like Dill, Coriander, Vietnamese Mint, Seeds of 17 Different Chilli I use in cooking, Thai Mint, Flowers for my Native Bees, Lettuce, Eggplant, French Beans & Tomatoes gifted from Roger.

I am sure you have all been doing a lot more that I have, it would be lovely to see just what you are getting ready or have planted for Autumn & Winter eating.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
