Playing with the recycling today we decided to make a cheap and easy automatic drip system on the cheap! 2 liter bottles with a tiny hole drilled in the cap (easily done with the cap still on the bottle) and a large one drilled in the bottom. Upended and filled with water they drip and don't seem to lose much if anything to evaporation!

Such a lovely day. I managed to water the glasshouse, weed some of the vege garden, plant some more broad beans, pick some celery, snap peas, broccili and some baby broad beans.

I didn't get much done in the garden today. My dear husband bought me two mandarin orange trees, pots and the stuff to plant them for the house.
They will be in my living room. (do we all call the main living area in a house the living room?) They were a present for my birthday. He is such a sweetie.

Ha ha John - just imagine those 15inch mulberrys!!
These natural disasters sure create havoc and stress for those living in the stricken areas. Makes us realise how lucky we are. I planted lots of stuff today including yard long beans - in a greenhouse but the weather is very mild at the moment. I also planted cleome, three different tomatoes, calendula, amaranthus, beetroot and lettuce. Roll on summer!

Mmm that last post of mine should have said 1 and 1 half inches not 15 inch Mulberrys! LOL

Good luck to all our friends in NZ coping with the earthquake! Quite a bit happening in the southern hemisphere right now - half of the southern states of Aus are under water right now and being hammered by strong winds! We are having some gentler spring rain - winter was so dry in Perth! Broccoli, beetroot, leeks and spring onions are all doing well at the moment. Our Mulberry tree is totally out of control and is nearly 7m tall covered with fruit most 1-15 inches long - I even saw some ripe ones today! I am going to be picking everyday once the sunshine triggers ripening!

Margaret, thanks for that tip re using black plastic/material on the soil around the beans - I will give that a go. They are in quite a sheltered north facing corner so this could well enhance prospects.
