I read on Foxs Lane blog that less frequently she blogs the harder it becomes to write a post. Gosh ain't that the truth. The whirlwind months of November and December have come and gone. 2013 is all done and 2014 is rollicking along already.
The two cubic metres of garden mix I shovelled into the garden beds has given us a good space for the growing season. The hard yakka of that day is easy to forget and already I am keen to order more to fill and replenish other areas of the garden.
The space was very neglected throughout late December and early January as we headed down to Southland to get married. (It was an amazing day but will regale the tale in another post). We had the lovely and incredible Brylee and Tony mow the lawns and tend the patch while we were away. Both deserve gold medals and certainly have a big piece of our hearts.
This is what the space looked like last week.
We have been enjoying squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, celery, carrots and beetroot since our return. The flat leaf parsley had gone crazy.....it had a severe haircut resulting in a bucket of parsley. Mr Fox was kind enough to help me remove the stalks. It was then processed into a few jars of pesto...so scrummy.
Planted recently: spring onions, silverbeet
Sown recently: sunflowers, rocket
The weekend coming will see some seed potatoes sown and some more carrots. Oh the possibilties. I just love this gardening lark.
