Bed 1 is powering on. We have eaten alot of the pak choy, so room is opening up for the Tomatoes to go in. I have moved the rainbow chards, one plant to the chooks and the other to the herb garden. I also need to thin the lettuces, they are abit crowded. The zuchinni that I planted at the start has been moved to the Bed 3. I am hoping it will survive, it was looking abit wilted this afternoon…
The egg plant that I found in the old garden (under a pallet) is starting to flower.
Bed 2 with the potatoes has erupted into a mass of growth. I have started to hill the soil up around them. A few of the plants are a bit slow so I will need to do another hilling later in the season.
Those tiny corn seedlings I showed you a week or so ago are no longer. With the recent rains they seem to be doubling their size overnight.
I will be sowing another block of seeds in the next few days. I have planted them so the oldest ones are at the back of the plot that is closest to south. This way they won’t shade the the smaller seedlings. I still have to find a hose to put around the top of this bed and trim the plastic *sigh* Tony has been away on-site this week so I haven’t done much this week (Bed 4 still isn’t done *yikes*).
My mantra this week is ‘lots of baby steps = 1 big step… lots of baby steps = 1 big step ‘
