Happy Good Friday everyone!
I'm with you Em, it's a holiday so whatever I want to do is ON!
Flat tyres! Oh that was me two weeks ago- for like, a year beforehand! And then D took it down to the tyre place and they fixed it. So Good! I felt a bit slack cos we didn't do it ourselves, but it meant it was fixed and back in the garden moving piles of ......whatever- compost I think....and I was happy!
Those bush turkeys sound really annoying....you must be very patient to continue to find ways to have a garden despite them Em. I guess when in the wild they have a bigger area (and no ppl tending gardens) so their destruction is less noticeable.
It's raining here.
I've already checked my garden. The cabbages are going so well! So is the cornflowers. I thought the rain had finished them, but they've come back. Mark I tried growing brussels- I love 'em- but I think the growing season was too short and warm here.They were very stunted. Do you get cold winters at your place? It seems like you grow lots of things I had decided it's too warm for here in NSW. We're coastal tho and no frosts.
Rx How disappointing! I don't know what was happening with your toms...did the birds like them? Maybe next season will be different.. Cos as Em said, there will be a next season! Fertiliser next time? I usually get baby toms growing out of my compost that are very sweet. Most tomatoe seeds seem to revert back to basic tiny toms, must be the genes. I agree with Mark, the reason supermkt toms are usually tasteless is they're picked semi-ripe. It takes lots of sun and sweet soil to sweeten tomatoes. Sorry to hear that you have bigger things to worry about than the taste of your tomatoes. take care.
I have a tiny forest of tomato seedlings, from two different sources. I'm considering filling my empty beds with them. A giant tomato experiment. Two types, and grown in all the different ways I can think of. Maybe I can even run some dripper lines thru the garden, so I'm not watering from above. Hmmm.....I can put basil and marigolds in one bed. beans in another! What else is an extra long weekend for??
Happy gardening everyone,
