Hey Gambit! OH YEAH if your partner says get another garden bed then I would! lolol.
It's great she's on board with your gardening adventures.
Our local Community Gardens are open 24/7 so we can go visit any time we like.
We're also welcome to pick anything and even take some worms for our worm farms for free too.
I hope YOURS are the same!
I used to "volunteer" or be involved with one near my current workplace.
The workshops were so fun and I gave a few myself, plus had open gardens in my own garden lots... back in the day.
Then I was offered a PAID job there, wow. But right at the same time I got a permanent job at my work and the pay was a great deal more. SO I grew food at work lol.
There are episodes on growing food on apartment balconies in Gardening Australia.
My fiancee has TRIED but our apartment in Seattle is ummmm FREEZING. He got grow lights and automatic waterers but I asked him to give up... it's been too difficult for him. Not much grew at all.
That's another lesson - plant selection to suit climate and position. The more suited these are the better our yields.
Hey Mark I BET your garden has loved the rain! It's so nice to have a rest from watering when it rains lol... and not be panicking our plants are dehydrating. Prayers work lol.
I took a photo of our "snow" frosted Christmas Tree for my fiancee and he said the weather looked like Seattle's weather! And he was right... the rain is lighter though and the mist is so beautiful.
But I'm sure the mozzies will be bountiful too soon ugh!
Lillylane, we're getting nice gentle soaking rain too.
Apparently we get more rainfall in Spring / Summer than other seasons. Much unlike England as we often compare our gardening exploits to.
We certainly did LAST Summer oh boy! My insurance claim came through 7 months later.
What a year.
If we get lightning from now on, I'm sure I'll lose some branches they're so HIGH up. But not near the house, so that's okay.
Still I'll be hiring a different tree lopper next year. They need a robust TRIMMING.
So will I after Christmas lol!
HO HO HO with a belly like Santa...
