This weekend I was FINALLY able to sow my spring seeds. A little late, but you know better late than never. 😉 Saturday was a glorious sunny spring day and so gardening was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Which kind of made up for not being able to sow them earlier.
I made a number of extra pots out of saved milk cartons (another idea I picked up somewhere at sometime on the interwebs). As well as washing and letting the UV in the sun sterilise my other pots for a couple of hours
I sowed 3 types of tomatoes, 2 types of lettuce, capsicum, eggplant, coriander and basil.
They are all ensconced in luxury accommodation in our bath tub (only showers for us during the next 4-6 weeks!). Tonight I noticed that both lettuces have tiny green heads sticking out above the surface.
I also sowed 3 types of bean, spring onions, carrots and radishes directly into prepared beds in the garden. In the front garden to be precise. I’m reclaiming it bit by bit for food production!
Next weekend my aim is to sow my pumpkin (a.k.a. summer squash), zucchini, cucumber and ha-ogen melon (I’m especially excited about this one!) directly into prepared garden beds…..
…Mmmmmm, a sigh of gardening contentment….
