Lifted, pruned and potted the 4 healthiest eggplants, and 12 capsicum plants. I will also prune and keep a handful of tomato plants to see how well they winter over too. Sowed some Sub Arctic Plenty tomato seeds - looking forward to seeing how they go.

I must remember that for next time rex lol.  you're right, it is very pretty & I do love it.

With the wet drizzly weather we are having, cricket is the only alternative !  This cricket doesn't chirp though.

Jane - that honeywort has a life of its own !  I cleaned a whole patch out and kept one little plant - the next summer - kaboom! heaps of it. But I dont actually mind it really, it fills up space easily and makes a nice backdrop to an annual border.

One of my veggie gardens are riddled with honeywort seeds sprouting every which way!  It's quite a sight.  I thought that I would leave the plant in the veggie patch so that I could collect the seed little did I know millions of seeds were already dropping all over the place.  Looks like I have a lot of re planting elsewhere.  Planted more red cabbage seedlings & basil. Love the stuff.

Rex, I don't think ANY crickets are good for the garden! LOL

Sowed more carrots and planted out celery seedlings yesterday.

Sitting around watching cricket is not good for the garden!

I have got quite a lot of winter vege in now - approx 70 leeks, three lots of cabb/broc/cauli in succession, two lots of celery,  one small plot of broadbeans [thanks Lynn] three lots of carrots. 

One lot of spuds to dig. Maybe try another if I get them in within the next week or so.

I have comfrey growing under  my apple trees too, and through the chook area  - lovely stuff!!

 

My bunnies (Wild ones) love chomping down my beautiful hidcote lavender... Must work out a way to 'bunny-proof' them...

I have comfrey growing under all my fruit trees & just the this morning I noticed the red clover I had forgotten all about.  It's entwined with the clover & it looks good.  Both are good for the fruit trees as it adds nitrogen to the soil.  Good idea with the lavender Rex.  I love lavender so I'll give that a go next time I gotta trim them.

LOL Rex - I just plain love broad beans! I'll plant them any time. Who cares? hehe

When I had an apple tree the apples always had codlin moth.  I planted lavender under it, and when I trimmed other lavender plants i tied the trimmings to the apple tree. The codlin disappeared in one season and we had beautiful old fashioned granny smiths - stewed up for breakfast or made into apple pies.
