Find us here on FacebookStill not much going on growing wise in the veg garden, we had some broccoli but lost all but one of the cauliflowers, they rotted. Not sure if it's really worth the effort when you can buy winter veg so cheap in the shops. The broad beans, kale, onions are a little bigger than last month but there's no sign of any garlic making an appearance!
I'll just leave you with photos of the progress so far and some images from the garden. Next month it will be spring so hopefully there will be more growing news.
Painting the frame
My jobs was to paint a gazillion thin slats that will be used to hold the plastic sheeting on the frame.
Reusing two windows found in the back of the shed, with openers too!
Looking down from the top veg garden
Another reused window placed in the roof as a vent
Taken this morning, in the fog, in me nightie and gumboots! Noice!
One side of the roof finished
The reused window that will open as a vent,
Joe had the company he bought the sheets from cut them all to size
And now some images from around the garden, Spring thinks it has sprung.
The other week I got home from a day out to find my roses had been pruned, Joe's mate from work had dropped off some more fruit trees for us and whilst they were here they saw they needed pruning and did them! So I've got them booked for the same time next year. The new fruit trees have been incorporated into the garden borders, there are some double/triple? grafted apples, a pear, and a plum.
Can't remember offhand what varieties but as the year progresses we may find out, in the meantime they are the 'what kind of fruit am I variety'.
That's it for this month, I will at least try to get around to reading the other posts from the NZ groups, there don't seem to be enough hours in the day sometimes.
Hope all is well in your garden
