Spent this afternoon in the garden, putting in my summer vegetables. I had weeded and turned the soil over last week and with overnight rain it was an easy task putting everything in.
I went to the plant barn in town. Such a great set up. You grab yourself a tray which has sheets of newspaper on it. And you take and wrap the plantings you want - all for 25cents each. Tomatoes and capsicum plants are $2.50. I will be heading back again next week to pick up some chilli plants.
Growing in the garden I have:
Capsicum - red/orange/yellow
Still growing from previous plantings:
Strawberries - think we will have a bumper crop this year.
Jobs to do:
Mulch down around the new plantings
Covering for the strawberries (before the birds spot them)
Joining in with Lizzie from Strayed from the table.
"The Garden Share Collective is a group of bloggers who share their vegetable patches, container gardens and the herbs they grow on their window sills. Creating a monthly community to navigate through any garden troubles and to rival in the success of a good harvest we will nurture any beginner gardener to flourish. Each month we set ourselves a few tasks to complete by the next month, this gives us a little push to getting closer to picking and harvesting. The long-term goal of the Garden Share Collective is to get more and more people gardening and growing clean food organically and sustainably."
