|One of the many Grapes that I need to prune soon|
First the ground was just too dry (you can see by the paddocks in the distance in my photos just how dry we still are), and then when finally we got some rain, it was too cold....we've had sleet and cold temperatures, and I fear that my seeds will come to nothing now. Or maybe they will come up in Spring, I haven't quite given up on them.
Brassicas are doing well, now that the white butterfly is gone, thank goodness.
They have large leaves, and good growth, and I have high hopes of some nice veges from this patch.
Cauliflowers, Broccoli and Cabbages are in here
|Lettuces under cover|
Jobs Undertaken this Month:
- dug out all the Potatoes that never did anything, they were rubbery and inedible. But at least I got that bed tidied up.
- Covered the Lettuces with netting tunnels
- Pulled up the French Beans and saved seed for next year
- Spring Onions
- Artichokes (still!)
Jobs to do next Month:
- Prune the Grapes
- Plant out Onion seedlings
- Dig in Chook Poo
