Despite not having the computer and being sick, things are still slowly being done at Little Farm.
Pre-sickness on Saturday and Sunday we all put in a huge family effort to finish the 4th bed, filling some more blue tubs and hilling the potatoes. I still have to mulch the spud bed. That is todays job.
The water chestnuts are in their final spot (and needing a water top up). I am really hoping the tub doesn’t smell to bad, my nose is all blocked up, so I have no idea. The neighbours haven’t complained yet so it can’t be too bad – right?
Bed 5 is in position, I still need to level out the soil so it sits straight, but that can wait for now. Along with finishing the paths and building the cucumber trellis. I also need to build a frame to hold up the berry plants. The raspberries are powering on and desperately need to be staked up.
Post-sickness not alot of things are happening but I have used the last few afternoons to ‘pot up’ alot of the seedlings.
There are more pots than this. Basil, opal basil, chilli, chards, silverbeets, capsicums and *oh yes* more basils. I have run out of pots and started to use icecream dishes… Luckily these are not all for us. Honestly I don’t think we could eat that much basil!
Later today I will be putting in more seeds – luffas, lettuces, zuchinnis, tomatotes, pumpkins, water/ rock melons and I am sure I can sqeeze in some more bush beans… Seriously you can never have enough bean plants!
