Well I’ve had a very productive weekend in my garden and feel wonderfully peaceful. Because the rain has been so frequent for me, this summer has not seen the devestation that it normally experiences in summer because I can’t keep up with the watering. Just look at this as an example. I have tomatoes, cucamelon, chillis, capsicum, lemongrass and eggplant all here. I also just planted some parsley seedlings (homegrown) and more of those beautiful zinnias.
I was cleaning up my massively overgrown grape vine that was growing over my fence and covering my fruit trees out the back when I nearly got stung by wasps again. Fortunately I saw them before they worked out it was me disturbing them.
The other exciting thing was that I have my first fruit on mandarin from my mate’ “Jerry’S” house. LOL. I am so glad for this blogs as I could go back to May 2017 and a) work out it’s been 4 years since I planted it and b) that it is paramatta sweets.
This was the post from back then :)
I am still harvesting silver beet which is surprising. While not as productive as during cooler months, they are still giving us a feed I’m attributing it to the partial shade from my wild grape vine.
This is surprising because I have not been able to harvest ANY cucumbers! They kept getting caterpillars all over them and aphids and would just give up the ghost. I started 2 under a net about 4 weeks ago and who knows, maybe this is the secret. So far they are looking amazingly healthy.
Here is my beetroot that I preserved from the harvests while I was on school holidays
And I harvested the longans. 1st decent harvest came in at around 2 kg
I’ve also planted some more flower seeds so hopefully they’ll come up and make my garden a bit more beautiful. Dianne, I also ordered the wampee!! So I made a area for that to go when it arrives. Well that’s it from me guys. Happy gardening.
