Checking Out Front Garden


Last year a red mustard plant grew out the back and this year one came up just at the entrance, at least I think its a mustard. The colour is wonderful so I took a photo to show you. We gets lots of comments as it looks magnificent, and roughly a metre across.

While out there, I decided to show the rest of the front garden.The snow peas are well on their way I planted last week, and the pink flowers of the purple peas look great, bit like a sweet pea in flower if you didn't know better.

The  planting of lots of bulbs, ranunculas, daffodils, babiana,  triteleia, freesias and muscari and created a flower garden with them, are growing well.

The row of garlic and perpetual leeks look healthy, and I am really pleased about the garlic, I hope that we get decent size bulbs with it.

 Carrots in different stages in the raised bed.

The glasshouse has a plethora of plants on the wet bed and I really need to start sorting them out, meanwhile the seeds in there are also growing well and I need to transplant them into some larger seedling trays.

Unfortunately  we  have been spending way  too much time with the Community Garden and I am getting behind.
The funding is sadly going slowly, I  have lowered the amount needed to $20,000 and our new aim for 1000 people to contribute $20 is now down to 880 needed, so it is progress. 75 days to go.

Till next time, stay safe.
