Removed various things going to seed and prepared the soil for new platings next week. Potatoes have popped through...yay! only 8 weeks until I have some ready to eat! All my seedlings are doing well and looking healthy, despite this CRAZY weather we've been having!

Got into the garden for the first time this Spring yesterday (last year that was in August!). Cleared the strawberry planter of borage (too big) and weeds, and found 7 surviving or offshoot plants. Supplemented that with half a dozen new ones. Harvested winter carrots and replanted that bed with sugar-snap peas, a few radishes and two heirloom tomatoes. Weeded the winter onion bed and topped it up with red onion seedlings and some perpetual spinach. Put some marigolds in each bed.
This morning I got pumpkin and calendula seedlings from the farmers market - waiting for the rain to ease up to plant those.

Hi Margaret
Have you tried dipping the cut stem of tom cuttings in 'worm tea??' or honey?? I have found just putting them in water on my window ledge is successful when they are small, if they are large them layering them works well too

Ivonne, im going to try the three sisters this summer with one of my garden beds, ive heard its all in the timing....but hey isnt that anything!
I planted out my first sunflowers yesterday, aswell as lots of beneficials where i plan to plant my tomatos....marigolds, nasturitum, phacelia and a whole lot of thyme so hopefully they will all be thriving by tomato season....
Found a massive colony of grey aphids on some stressed turnips that had gone to seed....a reminder that i need to start the weekly fertiliser teas, and make a note of it too!
