After a warmer than usual, a Climate Change, July gives way to August. It looks like we've had our serving of 'Winter'.
Here's a walk around the beds...

Fantastic! You have your 25th subscriber mate. I'm in full sprinter mode over here too. I got quite confuserated by Christa mistaking us for each other. It must be the good looks and charm, I guess. I can't plan a video to save myself. I always know what I want to talk about but never plan it too much. Scripts and stuff are over-rated.
I'm doing a fair bit of Ruth Stout and just chucking seeds around the patch. It seems to be working pretty damn well. If I remember, I'll go back and add a comment on the discussion where we talking about that.
The trick with the milk crates is to insert a terracotta wine cooler into the middle of them for irrigation purposes. Cover each cooler with shade cloth to reduce evaporation and keep the mosies and cane toads out. You can still hose directly into them to top up the water.
Thanks for that. I loved how you used the milk crates. Ingenious. I'd have never of thought of doing that! Sprinter, loved that as well, it made me chuckle.
You should live here Valerie! Being spoilt for choice is how we roll.
Indeed it is precisely the jungling mix that is one factor keeping bug-nasties away.
Even though I plant the plants, I often lose some in the polyculture.
I also walked past plants I did not mention and I only traversed half the garden space. As it happen, I had lunch on the simmer indoors and was getting hungry.
Next time rather than impulsively perambulate, I will plan the walk.
It was , in my mind, a video experiment....
Hey Dave. Great to see your garden. You may want to slow down the camera/visual pace in your next one as there is so much to see. I felt like a bee spoilt for choice ;) Your garden certainly looks very productive.
Since Christa mistook me for Andrew I thought I'd try to become a facsimile of the oft watched and gazed upon Lord of the MacDowall Manor.
Rather than be, that is, one of his serfs -- even though I am not to the manor born.
I'm more than nouveau-green type. Still common.
