I haven't had much spare time lately to spend time out in the vegie patch but tonight I got just under an hour of daylight out there to potter around, pull out some weeds, do some more string ropes for my snow peas to climb up and to water them with some seasol and molasses - it was a nice way to end the daylight house.
Last week was a week full of rain and this week is going to be several days of 20/21 degrees - great growing conditions!
Onto the photo updates:
The first planting of Onions and Garlic are still going well:
Second planting of Onions and Garlic aren't doing as well - not sure why they are yellowing - anyone know? They are planted right next to the first lot
Broad beans are still soldiering on
Cauliflowers are getting big - can't wait to see the edible bit growing
Broccoli - one of them is almost ready to pick!!
The Leeks are getting really tall
The snow peas are also getting taller - I've added some more string for them to grow on today
Spinach is growing nicely still even though I chopped a lot of it off the other day to eat
The Spring Onions are slowly growing - hurry up!!
The second planting of Broccoli and Cauliflower are starting to get bigger
I have a BIG snail problem so I've put out a few containers with beer in them - the theory is that they love the taste, they go into the container, get drunk and then drown. I was going to put snail pellets down but it's not a good idea seeing as I will be getting chooks soon
