We ended up with 23mm yesterday (Saturday) and woke up to bright sunshine this morning.
As it turned out it became a good day for planting seeds.
Water Cress - Nasturtium officinale. Started out by sprinkling some Water Cress seeds over about a one meter square area and watering them in.
I've never grown Water Cress before so this'll be a new learning curve for me. Seed purchased from The Seed Collection.
Tomato - Australian Red. A bush tomato with medium sized fruit. This plant produces large flat red fruit and it is noted for its ability to form ripe tomatoes in cool summer areas. Seed purchased from Rangeview Seeds.
Eggplant -Taskeniki, Rosa Bianca and Red Square. What was I thinking? Three varieties of eggplant.
That's right, I was trying to make the order up to ten dollars so I could get free postage and they were appealing to me too. Seed purchased from The Seed Collection.
Alyssum - Royal Carpet. Something to feed the bees with. Seed purchased from The Seed Collection.
Tomato - Cherry Roma. Picked these up from Bunnings.
I was looking for a cherry tomato when I saw these. This will be the first time growing these so I'm curious to see how they turn out.
Coriander. These seeds are from a coriander plant I let go to seed and then collected the seeds for my self to see if I can become more self sufficient.
Other seeds I've collected are Basil, Pumpkin and Beans (dwarf), not a huge list by all means but I have radish and rocket going to seed now that I'll collect. As I get better I'll increase my varieties.
A part from weeding and mulching some rose and bamboo prunings that just about covers my day in the veggie garden. One more thing, the bamboo prunings were from a lattice structure I built for some climbing beans, Purple King, also purchased from Bunnings.
