Hmm I am a little bit late doing this but better late than never.
Sowing Seeds and Planting Still nothing in the propagation box. But the parsley is up, they are the tiniest little seedlings. Other plants that have gone in: Coffee trees, Sunflowers, succulents, liriope (the last two are from a plant sale a daycare – left overs from the fete) and afew other ornamental the needed planting. Also the Spring onions have gone into bed 4 and the rescued beetroots have survived the collapse and transplant.
The herb garden is now in summer mode. The parsley, corriander, dill and borage have come out and chillis, basil and sunflowers have replaced them.
Meanwhile the boys bean teepee finally sprouted beans only for the chooks to munch on them! Grrr… they (the beans certainly not the chooks!) will be getting a bit of TLC so hopefully they will recover.
Planning for the future The menu for Sunday (when the family comes over) and the number of seats, tables and eating utensils that will be needed. I dislike using plastic so I will have to borrow some plates and cutlery.
Working for the future Still freezing the glut of beans that are coming in. I am also having a problem with grasshoppers, they are eating everything! They also eat the seedlings when they germinate! I have now sow 3 lots of zucchini seeds, they germinate and then they are gone!
ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH GRASSHOPPERS?
Building the community N/A this week I can’t think of a thing! Does donating to life line count?
Learn a new skill Bed 4 is fixed we had to take out all the dirt at that end and then fix the bed. We also put a steel post in for extra support. And I learnt some valuable wood working skills when we built the guinea pig hutch. (The piece of iron underneath is meant to be on the roof… ) hopefully it will be finished before the guinea pigs arrive.
