Hi happy BB gardeners!
So happy to be able to spend a WHOLE DAY in my garden tomorrow (I hope it doesn't rain!).
I have lots of photos to take as my kids and grandkids want to see it all lol.
We put up 3 shade sails, 1 in front garden, 2 in back. Just after a few days, my plants look so much happier, greener, less stressed.
Our huge Mystery Tree now has NO longs around it, I dug out the awful weed trees and it's ready to plant agapanthus I rescued from the curbside, last year during lock down, and had potted them up, to see if they'd thrive. They have.
So they're ready to plant out.
I also found a great spot for the awful plastic compost container lol. Right below the bath worm farm (that I'm yet to fully construct). It's hidden there, so all good.
My little liriopes I got on sale are root bound in their pots, so they have to be potted UP in bigger pots and / or planted out.
Need to plant my Arrowroot bulbs but just considering WHERE.
I also learnt about "Blue Spurflower" that can be used as (drum roll) loo paper! I think I might have some growing, so that needs to be planted down the back too.
My sons and I finally reconnected the front guttering PVC pipe to the front tank, cleared the gutters and tank top. So lucky it was before the rain came.
Found an awesome way to store all my pavers! Building a timber storage section in an unused spot. Ready to be picked up by anyone. So whenever I find more pavers, which is every day, I can add these to the walls of this structure and then take them away when needed. It's gonna be TALL lol.
Also thought I could use some of the steel beams to create terraces but yet to be seen lol.
I need to deconstruct the "Leaf Mould" in the front garden, it's just too ugly. The more I get things in order, the more this kind of stuff stands out and looks awful. Might do this when I create the bath worm farm, so I can use what's not yet decomposed in there.
Need to collect some Worm Farm worms from a Community Garden near my work BUT can't travel there during lock down so will need to wait until I return to work to collect my new babies lol.
After LD, hoping to get lots of muscle help to lift a huge work bench over my balcony railing and lower it down to the garden. I to put it in Mama's Cubby :-)
Might even get to Bunnings in the next week to spend my birthday vouchers. Pretty exciting for me.
Have fun in the garden everyone!
