As I had cleared out all the beds before I left I was now ready to start sorting things out around the garden.
Saturday July 1:
Many of the beds were thickly covered with nettles so I lifted them, rough chopped and dug them into the soil to rot down (instant green manure!!!).
I found a small handful of Potato Onions that had survived my absence and planted these out in a wicking bed which had three surviving Parsley plants growing in it.
Monday July 3:
Bought and potted up Kale, Broccoli and Silverbeet seedlings put them in the Greenhouse to grow a bit bigger before facing the frosty mornings.
Tuesday July 18:
Planted out Broccoli, Silverbeet and Kale seedlings in a wicking bed in the shade tunnel.
Divided up some Clumping Onions/Shallots from the garden and planted them out in a more convenient position by the back entrance.
Thursday July 27:
Seeds sown into punnets on a shelf in Greenhouse:
Lettuce: Red Romaine, Dov
Cleared weeds from a wicking bed full of Egyptian Onions.
Planted out seedlings of Kale and Silverbeet in a newly made wicking bed in the Shade Tunnel
Flat Leaf Parsley
Curl Leaf Parsley
