On Again.

I have been very slack this last couple of weeks but I have been working fulltime and its hard to fit everything in. I hilled the potatoes this arvo - again! Took a full bag of mulch too. There are irises in the fairy garden and all the roses are blooming.

Birds have been feasting on some of my seedlings so that has sucked. I had planned to add piccs today but my camera is flat, so that will have to wait until tomorrow.

Rain Again

I am getting tired of the rain. I know its a good thing but it would be just lovely if we could have a week or two of nice weather before the next lot of rain. Water is just sitting on my lawn.

This is a pic of the carrots and silverbeet. The silverbeet have been giving and giving, they were the first thing planted and are still going. Amelia's flowers brighten the back corner of the yard.
This is where the brussell sprouts grow. Those little round things are brussell sprouts.

I finally found two cauliflowers in the garden, at first I thought they were cabbages that hadn't hearted!

This is the plot for my cucumbers.

My tomatoes that Mum bought me.

Hilled potatoes that after this rain will need to be done again.

My potted herb garden, well the start of it with mint, basil and chives.

I cut the first lot of broccoli today and am going to blanch it tonight - doesn't it look good?
