Post #3 – Gardening

My final post for today, I promise. 

We are starting to have some gorgeous weather again, yesterday was warm and sunny all day.Perfect for gardening.

Buffie and I got stuck into the only usable garden bed, dividing it up into plots, creating paths and planting all the little seedlings I’d either grown or we had purchased. There are beans, chinese cabbage, angelica, feverfew, beetroot, onions, spring onions, melissa (lemon balm), lettuces (several kinds including cos and rocket), sorrel, three types of thyme (lemon, pizza and chicken!), pyrethrum, parsel, artichokes and a few others I can’t think of right now. There is also a tamerillo (sp?) and a fig tree in this bed.

 

Creating the paths was a great way to help raise up the beds on either side of it.

It’s not nearly enough, but it’s a great start and a few of these items are actually perennials and will remain in the bed permanently.
