Working in the garden

September 22nd, 2013 at 08:43 am

Over the past few weeks I have been working in my back garden trying to make a vegetable garden of sorts. I had to remove a lot of plants the could be planted else so I had to fix that garden first then add manure and potting mix to the bed as the was very little soil left after I removed a dying shrub that just broken apart when you put your weight on it. Then I moved all the tree roots as well. That done and the irises and bromeliads were planted out. I hope not have to do that garden for a while now.

Yesterday I planted out some vegetables in the new garden beds here is hoping it's no too hot for them. Next year I may have to plant them out in the last six weeks of winter as our weather has changed here. It's around 26 - 31C for early spring and very little rain. A good day in summer is 28-30C and it's our rainy season so here's hoping. Today I worked on my other garden bed to remove all the weed plants now I need to remake that bed as it's a Square foot garden bed. I am planning the remove everything and start from scratch again. Even digging out the soil and all roots from the old plants and composting it all and relaying that bed as it a removable bed.

This will be in the near future as I may just get it ready for my summer crop as like tomatoes and radishes may be silver beet as I have to find a good stop for this to grow.

But other things may take my time up over coming months so have to see how things go!
