Little pots, be gone! Inspired by Doug’s huge grow bags, I bought ten x 100l bags. They are very good quality and at around $12 a piece, you can’t go wrong. I got them here and I think Doug uses the same supplier: https://planterbags.com.au/ I’m also surprised that I can still slide the bags around to move them even when fully planted.
Most of our north side plants that were in dinky pots have now been moved into the grow bags. I think the curry tree is the last to go and we’ll do it tomorrow. We ran out of soil today. Oh, the pomegranate on the north side has been removed from the garden bed completely. Removing the stump was tough going to be honest. I don’t need two pomegranates and real estate at my place is very valuable. As an aside, jeez I have a LOT of dried Madagascar beans. LOL.
The south side is starting to get some sun again. I’ve started replanting cherry toms and some Chinese greens over there, both in the garden beds around the trees and in the aquaponics. The citrus on that side is flowering like crazy and the peaches are developing well. I learned from last year and am keep the water up to the peach.
I’m hoping our five free loading chickens come into the lay soon. It’s all about daylight hours. The journey to finalise standard sized quail has begun. Next time My Rozie is out, I’ll process and “can” all the males. It’s still too cool at night to feed the fish.
I re-read my blog from this time last year and I finally seem to be settling into a reasonable annual routine. I’ve also decided I won’t bother with cabbages any more: too many grubs which never infest my silver beet, and the chard is a much faster and more flexible crop.
I'll try to add some pix if I get the chance.
