Well, we are into the second day of September so it is time for another Garden Share Collective post, I missed the August one, so am going to do a garden update even if my vegie patch is not doing much at the moment.
Springtime is lovely around here, I always forget how many bulbs are in the garden and get a very pleasant surprise when everything starts flowering, we have plenty of jonquils and daffodils, iris and freesia are starting to open, and my pots of hyacinths are looking gorgeous ( sorry no pics of them tonight, I will dedicate a post to them soon I think!).
I have started a big mulching program for the front garden.
It feels like I haven't done a lot in the veggie patch recently, but thinking back there is more going on than I realised! I have started weeding each veggie bed ready for planting Summer things, and have bought some interesting seed to try this year. (Beetroots and collards)
Kept feeding and watering the broad beans, they are looking good, with lots of flowers.
I have been down to the Community Garden a few times this month, and there is a lot of different veggies growing down there at the moment, it puts my garden to shame!
Planting: I sowed English spinach and snow peas, and planted out golden shallots.
Harvesting: Rhubarb, lettuce, potatoes, spring onions, lemons, limes, mandarins, lots of flowers.
To do : Sow seeds of tomatoes, beans, carrots and lettuce.
Prepare an area for sweetcorn.
Sow sunflowers, zinnias.
Mulch and weed all the beds ready for tomatoes.
Here are a few snaps from my garden at the moment.
......someone left the gate open and the chooks had a nice time pecking around the big garden, Franklin watched on from a safe distance........
So how is your garden growing this month?
