April 2011 - 4

Happy Easter!  I hope that you have had a wonderful break.  I finally got some decent garden time in and cleared out the last of the Summer veggies, prepared all of the beds, planted the Spring bulbs (at least some of them) and planted the Winter seedlings.  I even did some weeding, started painting the fence and have nearly finished painting the shed.

Still waiting to put in the remainder of the bulbs, garlic and new strawberries but with any luck there will be a few sunny weekends ahead and I can get these and the bulk of the outstanding landscaping work done and dusted.

No new photos yet - not really sure if pictures of empty beds is really that great.

More soon

April 2011 - 3

Hi all

Well the weather is changing here and the Autumn colours are starting to show themselves.  Not much garden work this week as it is Henry's birthday, but I have picked the last of the Summer produce, and have very little ready in the way of veggies, other than chillies and lettuce, and that remaining pumpkin, for a few weeks.

I am hoping to do loads over the Easter weekend.

More soon

April 2011 - 2

Well another week has passed and the last of the warm weather has gone with it.  I have a busy weekend so the garden will not see a lot of attention this week.  The rain has set in for about five days so that should cheer up the plants and weeds.

I am going to pick what I expect to be the last of the Summer/early Autumn veggies tomorrow and will be pulling out the cherry tomatoes to get the bed ready for the Easter planting.

Have a great week.

April 2011 - 1

As you can see I am in the process of setting up the Blog again.  I haven't quite got the hang of it all, but hopefully is it an improvement.

I went to the Melbourne Flower and Garden Show yesterday and managed to pick up loads of new products, organic fertilizers, seeds, plants, bulbs, and some new garden ornaments - some of which you will see in the slide show.

I have big plans to get loads of garden work done during the Easter break so hopefully the weather will hold out until then.  Stacks of weeding and planting to do in the mean time.

Until next week
