In The Garden… New Seedlings

Our trip to Bunnings last weekend, saw me bring home some seedlings for my veggie garden. I couldn’t resist heading out into the garden section and have a little look at what was in season. I know I said I was going to wait until spring/summer but I can’t!! Who can resist the urge to get out into the garden, not me! newsoilOn Monday I had some new soil delivered so I could top up my veggie boxes. The new seedlings are going to love their fresh soil.newsoil2Some of my new seedlings, Beetroot and Peas.newsoil3I also got some Snow Peas and Lemon Thyme.newsoil1The new seedlings are awaiting their new home so I hope to get out there today and settle them in.

In The Garden… Revisiting

There hasn’t been much progress in my veggie garden. At the moment, my veggie garden has been cleared of all weeds, the soil has been turned over and they are sitting there waiting for the spring/summer planting season. So I thought I would go back and revisit some of the previous In The Garden posts.

In the Garden… my neglected veggie garden

neglectedgarden neglectedgarden1 neglectedgarden2 neglectedgarden3 neglectedgarden4 neglectedgarden5My poor veggie garden has been a little bit neglected lately. I really want to head outside and give it some tlc but it just gets pushed to the end of my to do list. Hence, my in the garden posts have been a bit scarce.

  • My first veggie box is taken over by weeds. The chooks have been getting a handful of these when I venture outside to hang the washing.
  • The swiss chard/silverbeet has become really tall and huge! Everytime I look out the kitchen window, I remind myself that I need to go and pick some.
  • I planted 4 bush cucumber seedlings, it seems like ages ago. And all I have to show for them is 1 cucumber! Not sure how to tell if it’s ready to be picked. Any tips on when it’s ready?
  • My third veggie box has so many parsley seedlings. I had a parsley plant there and let it go to seed. Well, this is what happens!! I can use my favourite word here, a plethora of parsley.
  • See, parsley is even coming up through the lawn. We have mowed over it twice and it’s still growing back. The positive thing with all this parsley, is that I have a ton or plethora of parsley to make dried parsley, yum!
  • I planted lettuce seeds in the veggie box where I had the old parsley plant. They started to emerge from the soil the same time the parsley shoots came up. I think they have been over run by parsley! What do you think?

Every Friday I would like to share with you an In The Garden post. You can join in too and you are more than welcome to share your garden or someone else’s. It could be the garden down the road or the park that you have in your town. You don’t have to have a veggie garden. It could be plants that are flowering or trees that are growing.

This is what has been happening in our garden this week.

  • Basil
  • Rainbow chard
  • Bush cucumber
  • Some of our plants are burnt on their tips from the hot weather
  • A plant has come up in our dirt area where we are landscaping the backyard. I am not sure what it is but I think it looks like a pumpkin. What do you think?
  • One of our trees in the backyard has little acorns growing. They look very cute.

I hope you have been enjoying your garden. Have you planted any new seedlings?

In the garden….. weeding and turning over soil

corngardenseedlings

 

  • Corn needs to come out and do some weeding
  • Clear up the weeds and turn over the soil
  • I still haven’t planted the seedlings that I bought last week.

With the weather being cooler this weekend I am going to head out into the garden and prepare the veggie boxes for the new seedlings. I was supposed to plant the seedlings last weekend but the days went by so fast. They definitely need planting so I am making sure I get out in the garden tomorrow.

You can head on over to dusty country road and see what is happening in Jacqui’s garden. Don’t forget to share what has been happening in your garden this week. Just leave a link to your blog in the comments so we can have a look.

Our veggie garden has done well during the summer growing season. We received four corn cobs this year. Last summer we didn’t  get anything from the corn. The possums ended up getting the cob as it was starting to grow so the rest of the corn plants had a hard time trying to heal itself. This year I constructed some possum protection around the veggies and success! The sweetcorn was very nice and we will grow some again next summer.

The tomatoes I grew from seeds, which I bought from Bunnings hardware and the Diggers Club. The Diggers Club has all sorts of plants, vegetable seedlings and heirloom seeds you can purchase online or from their shop. The tomato plants have grown well, with watering regularly and giving them fertiliser. I have found though the tomato plants aren’t producing a lot of fruit. Last year I just bought tomato seedlings from Bunnings and they gave us more tomatoes. It doesn’t matter though, just trying to find out what works best. That’s the joy with having a veggie garden!
