The vegetable patch has needed attention for quite some time. It takes me a long time to get motivated in the backyard, but once I do, I could go all day. We spent most of the time pulling out the old stuff; coriander that had seeded, yellowing dill that was over six feet tall, and bunches of spinach and lettuce that had bolted in the recent hot weather.
I left the overgrown garlic chives since I like the bobbling seed pods dotting the garden.And most of the (flowering) thyme and sage for it's lacy colour.We planted a variety of capsicums, eggplants, cucumbers and Thai mint.
I've also set up a little workstation along the fence where I can potter about and keep a few projects going.... will also attempt to keep all the gardening tools like snippers, gloves, shovels watering cans in the one spot to prevent the roaming around the backyard for half an hour to locate said implements. Here I plan to pot up succulents, and grow seedlings.
Currently on the workstation; Dill seeds drying and a mini hot house made from and old kiwi fruit container (I've got some basil seeds planted in there)
I'm also trying to strike some thyme. I've put the woody stems into small bottles of water in hope that they will strike roots (not sure if this is the right time for this type of business) if successful I hope to grow little bunches of thyme in the white teacups I picked up in a give-away pile. Previous attempts at simply sticking the thyme offcuts into teacups proved futile. Maybe because I get all excited about a gardening project and then promptly forget to water. Will try and keep the gardening mojo humming along this time.....
