Last night after dinner, baths and general tidying I wandered outside to water the garden.
I had a look at the box of vege plants I had bought and decided that there is no time like the present, put on my gardening gloves and off I went.
We have a raised garden bed that sits under one of the apricot trees. I was planning on turning it into a sandpit for the boys, but after removing the cover and seeing how rich the soil was I decided it would be perfect for vegetables.
The current vege patch is home to the cabbages, which are thriving. The soil is just not in great condition. It needs a few months of mulching and such to get it up to scratch.
I planted lettuce, carrots, silverbeet, tomatoes, cucumber, capsicum, broccoli and cauliflower. And new to me watermelon and rock melon. I companion planted so hopefully it will thrive. The soil drains well and it has the added bonus of sitting under the apricot tree which will give it much needed shade over the hot summer months.
It was a nice time of day to garden, there was a cool breeze blowing and I stayed outside till dark.
Fingers crossed for a bumper crop!
Happy weekending lovelies!
