Done Diggin', for now & Kylie's Rose
Well I had a good productive day in the garden today.
In my home garden I managed to weed and mulch the Italian garlic, Purple flowering Broad Beans and the Strawberries as well as giving them a dose of fish emulsion.
I'm still chasing the Grey aphids that seem determined to keep having a go at my brassicas.
Then after lunch I went down to the community gardens to finish digging the last third of my garden plot.
As this bed is mainly going to be used for a spring planted crop of potatoes I'll probably plant more peas in here mainly as a green manure crop.
I'll let them go until I get at least one picking of peas off the bushes and then dig the whole lot in.
I also went down yesterday (Sunday) to plant some Leek and Spring Onion seedlings. The photo is a bit short on detail but you get the picture.
The ' Greenfeast' peas I planted are up and going strong.
I also mulched them with some aged horse manure that is available at the gardens, so that should help them along as well.
This is a photo of Kylie's Rose who is my step daughter.
I can't remember how I came by this rose and I don't remember what it is called either, but we attributed it's beauty to Kylie and it has been with me now for 17/18 years (the rose and Kylie that is).
We lived on the Gold Coast at the time I purchased it and when we moved here to Toowoomba Kylie's Rose came with us.
