I hate leaving my flowerbeds, kitchen garden and greenhouse at this time of year. Not only do I miss out on the wonder of seeing the garden change by the day, but everything's so tiny and fragile, the slightest drought/drench/heatwave/chill can really mess with my plans.
Luckily though everything survived, thanks to a few milder days and a very helpful friend.
The south-facing flowerbed was completely transformed into a vibrant jungle of tulips & perennials.
|Lots of colour! Note the lime & calmondin trees out for a much-|
needed dose of sunshine after almost two weeks of shady living.
|My lettuce babies have survived the slugs, but are looking a little parched!|
|The peas are looking nice and solid.|
|The yellow onions are doing really well... as are the weeds! Can you spot any |
carrots in there??! Carrot fly has been a major problem, so this year I've planted
onions AND marigolds around them.
|Potatoes! :D But still no sign of life in the asparagus bed. |
I thought they would show first...?
|Beautiful blue (?) parrot tulips living in harmony with Jalastar capsicum annums.|
|It's time to plant the toms into the ground, but there's too much |
going on, so they'll have to wait just a little longer.
|First harvest! :D|
|Chicken salad (with shop-bought toms, of course).|
