Just about finished weeding the veggie garden beds and the weather is starting to warm up :)

What do you plan to plant? I should be doing kale and Tom Thumb lettuce right now, but have been too discouraged to attempt. Did move all the strawberries out of the asparagus tire and into their own tire. Found a few grubs while delving and the chicks enjoyed them. Next spring, we will replace all the soaker hoses with the emitter system. The soaker hoses get clogged with minerals too quickly. We also had a few weeks of ultra high water pressure in our rural line and it blew out the timer.

So far , I will be planting tomato's, zucchini, capsicums (think you call them bell pepper),corn, spring onions, beetroot and cucumbers ( when the last of the frosts have gone)

 

I am enclosing one bed this year to keep the ducks and rabbits out. Ill then be able to grow lettuces, bok choy and other veggies that are a smorgasbord for the wildlife here :)

 

I have some strawberries in and also some herbs in pots. Thanks for the tip re the soaker hose. I have it up my driveway, though will avoid putting in into the 3 x beds.

 

The weathers just starting warm up now :yes

Long weekend here this coming weekend for the Melbourne Cup. So by the end of Tuesday, I should have all my seedlings into the ground.

My veggie beds are still not up and running , have been so busy doing other things around the place , including cleaning up so not to create hiding spots for snakes.

 

Had my first batch of banana passionfruit ( so good ) :)

Beautiful spot! Do you eat the passionfruit as-is, or do they need cooking? I know about black eyed peas, but I've never seen a banana passionfruit...
