I have some seeds and plants in the ground. How good am I!! OK, I know I haven't done anything more than I should be doing every week anyway but I like to make a big deal of the little things I do.
Daughter bought some Broccoli and Cauliflower seedlings for me and some Spinach seeds. They are all in. I had seeds for carrots, lettuce, beetroot, snowpeas, celery, so they are in. I transplanted a pot of Sweet Potato that wasn't doing anything into a big tank, transplanted some Strawberries that were getting too clumpy...what else...Put some Garlic in. And some, I think garlic chives but am not sure. I found them in a cup on the table after a daughter left so am thinking she gave them to me but forgot to say. They are in a pot so I can keep an eye on them and they don't get lost as there is only a few of them.
I didn't put the potatoes in soon enough so half got eaten by the bandicoot. The rest is now in, some in a fridge garden and some in the ground.
That's about it but at least it is done. It's not a big job, it's not hard, it's not rocket science so I have no idea why I don't just get out and do more more often.
I have all the seeds still inside where they don't go so need to put them away. That will take, oh, 2minutes, maybe. It should have been done 5 days ago! Might go do it now 'cause I know I'll swear a bit if the mouses get them.
Good to see others are planting things too. I've never grown parsnips or swedes or radish...lots of things really, because we don't eat them but I sometimes think I should try different stuff now and then. I did put in some Jerusalem Artichokes last year, they are a new thing for us. I'm pretty happy with how they are so should try other stuff as well. Should probably get everything that we do eat in first, that would be a great start. Onions come to mind. Will do those this weekend sometime. And I have Kale seeds, I might get some of them in too.
Off to do those seeds
