My garden is doing really well thanks, I just don’t have any photos of it though, how bad is that? So much for this being a blog about gardening.
The truth is, while I am devoid of pics of our place, I have loads of pics of our local beach, all taken recently.
The question is, am I spending too much time at the beach hence no garden pics? LOL
So you may wonder about our garden – does it still exist? Yes indeed it does! I have a bed now which is having a break this winter – it is currently tucked in with a blanket of hay. I was going to sow a cover crop here but I just couldn’t remove the zinnias from this space even though they were in the throes of dying.
I had planted some peas in this bed, which were meant to grab hold of the trellis near by and haul themselves skyward. Did they? Not a chance, so I removed them the other day in disgust. It never ceases to amaze me what will grow in abundance one year and do zip the following. Does this happen to you?
My salad and herb bed is doing brilliantly. Sure there might not be any lettuce in here, but everything else is growing nicely. Loads of herbs, beetroot, spring onions and celery .. and flowers, we can’t forget the flowers.
Our garlic is showing off in another bed with some fine greenery – I’m due to mulch these soon and give them a good splash of my homemade smelly fertiliser (think very smelly) and some Julie TLC.
The chilli bed needs removing so more garlic and walking onions can go in here, and as I’m short on space I’m going to dedicate some of this rather large bed to broad beans (I must be nuts as they are inclined to topple when grown – but hey I’ll try anything once).
Brassicas are in and growing with more due to be planted in the next week.
I gave my raspberries a mini trim, which means no doubt they won’t fruit next season … ah the joys of loving my secateurs and being hopeless with raspberries!
The sheep are still chunky and in need of a diet … fat chance now I’m afraid. Our chooks are laying which is surprising given the daylight hours … or should I say lack of!
Dan is much better and hubby is on the improve too .. thanks so much for all your kind words of encouragement.
