Down the garden path. Veggies on the left, herbs on the right!
A gift from Mother Nature. The Nasturtiums sprout here every year from seed that blew here from the other side of the path four years ago.
Beautiful reds and pinks!
Another gift from Mother Nature. These parsley seeds travelled 5 metres (16ft) to get to where this plant grew on the veggie bed side of the path.
The sage is bigger than last year after I cut it back by two thirds in the winter and gave it a generous sprinkle of blood and bone.
Cyclamens grown in the same pot for three years. They just keep coming back.
Spring planting has not yet started, but we are ready with some new stands we bought for the green house. Planting starts again on Sunday.
Seed pods will form soon, ready for pickling. Hopefully there will be enough for a small jar. You can substitute the pods for capers in salads.
Further down the path......
Look, someone at work! I had just finished planting 5 black beauty zucchinis and now I am spreading home made compost all around them.
Nearly finished work....
Buddha lends a hand. Nice spade mate! Glad you found a nice spot near the potted leek.
Look what else we have found down the garden path. Holly dog patrolling for intruders!
The path continues around the back of the house to the Cabbage Tree. Is that a flower spike that grows from within? Must have been all of the rain we have had for the tree to get this excited!
Led to the other side by the path, we discover the wicking bed. All plants growing well, but I fear it is too hot for the Pak Choy as it is going to seed. Better get it into a stir fry post haste.
Nice salad bed.
The Jonathan apple tree has finally burst its buds. No beasties eating them yet! We seem to have a scarcity of earwigs this year so far. The oil traps are out and waiting.
ANZAC Peaches formed from the blossom already. Doing well so far.
Finally at the end of the garden path, we have sprouting broccoli and cabbages. There is even some ready to pick.
Thanks for joining me, down the garden path, hand in hand. Lovely, wasn't it!
