Updates? Did somebody say, Updates?

It's the beginning of Summer and the veggie garden is going as well as can be expected despite all the weathers attempts to destroy everything.

I've made this video to fill you in (update progress) on how things so far.

I've also fertilised all my citrus trees and rose bushes but keeping the water up to them is nearly a full time job.

Maybe one day it will rain again, *sigh*

This little cutie.

You can't have too much pretty in the garden and this oregano, 'Country Cream', is divine.

It will add a nice spot of brightness along the edge of the path leading up to the veggie garden.

Once established it will need next to no care from me aside from a good haircut every now and then, some mulch, very little watering and keep the weeds out.

How to Grow Easter Egg Radish

How to Grow Easter Egg Radish in a Pot with the Kids.

A great way to pique some curiosity in your kids by sowing some colourful radish, seeds.

No need for any extra fertilising, there should be enough minerals and nutrients in the potting mix to sustain the radish to maturity.

Thanks also to Bunnings, Mr Fothergill's seeds, Searl's Potting Mix, and Seasol for your great products.

And thank you for watching.

Leeks, bacon and cabbage recipe

My basket’s too small. 

Beetroot will be pickled tomorrow and the leeks will join some baby cabbage and bacon for dinner tonight.

The Magic Bean Seeds by Stewart Dorman.

The story of how I rescued some been seeds from oblivion to return them to productive nirvana. 

Where Garlic and asparagus also make an appearance (watch to the end)

Possible the easiest and most rewarding veggie you'll grow in your patch after Radish.

So, what are you waiting for, give em a go?

Here's a tip I didn't mention in the video, they love a good watering, especially when they are flowering.
