I have figs coming along...
Ironbark pumpkin growing nicely...
I have planted yarrow all among the beds, it has such a pretty flower.
A whole crop of purslane came up in a vacant bed after recent rains.
Potatoes in the pot and bag nearby. The garbage bin holds some lovely smelling green manure...yuck!
This butternut pumpkin came up all by itself.
Pretty in pink.
Oregano in flower and so is the thyme.
The sage smells divine.
Its a bit messy out in the veggie patch, the winds have played havoc with the shade-cloth!
Self sown pumpkin (I think), and cucumbers in there somewhere...
Capsicums and apple cucumber.
Does anyone know how to treat the grub/larvae that is infesting my eggplant and tomatoes? I fear that if I do not treat it soon I will pick very few of these veggies. I would prefer an organic method if anyone has one please?
I am not having the best of luck in my veggie patch this year, not sure whether it is the weather as it has been quite mild, or the fact that I changed the soil around in the beds and some of the plants are not happy about this.
Quite a few months ago I dug up a piece of fig tree that was growing in my sons yard, and finally after all this time we have some new growth!
We found we weren't using our swimming pool any more, so when the liner got a hole in it, rather than pay out more money for a new one and water to refill, we decided to fill it in and make use of this area for something else. Hubby is filling this in himself, one wheel barrow of dirt at a time!
Kombucha ready to bottle...
And done, just need to add fruit pieces.
Preparing for the year ahead, my goal is to be more organised!
My attempt to make a pretty cover for this plain diary...
See you soon,
