|All my "Friends" Swap goodies from Margaret.|
|My beautiful "Royal Albert" gift from Margaret.|
I also wanted to share my doings on the weekend. My husband bought me a free standing vegie tub last year so as I could pretend I really was the hippie, earth Mother, vegie growing type I so longed to be.
We didn't get to fill it or plant anything because of the incredibly wet Spring and Summer last year (they would have drowned). So on Saturday whilst I was made beautiful at my hairdressers No 1 Husband went and got some beauitful organic soil......have you have ever shovelled soil with newly coiffured hair??? Well I did AND added my home grown compost to the mix along with resident earth worms (very chuffed about those fellows). I have planted all the little seedlings and companion plants, basil and marigolds (confuses the bugs apparently) I have mulched and given them a weak drink of 'worm tea' (don't ask). So there is no reason for these vegies not to grow....I even gave them Reiki (neighbours think I'm nuts anyway).
I shall keep you informed of their progress (I can hear you all yawning out there)....is it too much to want my very own cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce from my garden and grown with my hands.
|Isn't it pretty all planted out.|
|Husband's strawberry plant...he thinks 'cos it came with fruit there will be more!|
|Companion Planting......don't I sound clever!|
Have a great day all
