I finally got the soil shoveled into my veggie beds, you'll never guess who did it?
I did. Of course I did, I dug my hand deep into my pockets and I hired help! No-one else was putting their hand up so we had a bobcat and driver in for an hour, he mixed up a bit of old loose paddock soil with a bit of old ash, the new organic soil and the Job was done!
I had some way over ready sugar snap seedlings to get replanted, so straight in they went, I don't know how well they'll do, they were ready weeks ago along with my sow.give.grow trans-plant that I am happy to report was left on a picnic table at the Tambourine Mountain Botanical Gardens, hope it found a good home.
Ooh, what are we going to do with these Mummy?
Run, Jump, Play, Hop, Dig
Gardening is so much fun for everybody!
On the same day my seeds also arrived from Diggers. . .Whoo hoo!
Although someone got just a little too excited online! As I sifted through the seeds I realised I only has a small handful of seeds that were actually any use to me right now, So with the help of eldest son and a few on lookers the seeds were planted.
So we waited, and we waited, and we waited...I think we (eldest son) may have planted some a little to deep? Oh dear.....
Anyway, after lots of water and regular inspections we finally have some greens. I don't think they'll all come up though. I've never really done much Winter planting before so I'll sit with what I've got and will anxiously wait for my Spring Sowing.
So Fragile these little seedings...
Lucky the Beans got a headstart in my seed trays, I probably should do more of that instead of planting straight into the garden beds, I think, I'll have to check my Diggers manual again, some seeds need to be sown direct and some into trays...
My Favourite - Rhubarb!!! I was hoping to get some corms for these but can't find them anywhere so I've planted a few seed which unfortunately will take a couple of years to mature.
I'm sure it will be worth the wait. . .
In the meantime, if there are any Brissy gardeners out there with hot tips on where to buy rhubarb corms, I'm all ears!
This would have to be my Rainbow Chard - Red
and Yellow, strange how they came in a mixed pack, yet the ones that are growing together seem to have the same colour stem???
Apparently Radish will grow anywhere, anytime and these babies have popped up everywhere.
I did have to hunt to find these, I do hope more of them come up as they are really the only Winter veg I planted.
What is this on my GARLIC?
HAPPY GARDENING :)
