Got overexcited in the herb section of the garden shop today... planted yarrow, winter mint, lemon balm, wild thyme, lemon thyme, rosemary, feverfew and garlic chives, as well as some rather late strawberries. Next weekend: another layer of compost, potatoes and a gazillion seeds for summer.

I like to use the water that gets cleaned from the bottom on my plants. I sometimes throw it into the compost if my timing is off and the plants don't need it. Also the goo in the filter goes into the compost.

From what I have heard Kali, the weather there turned cold and wet. Our spring was like that this year. Fall however looks as though it is going to be hot and dry. Go figure!

Lynda it looks like you are getting the spirit of bounty! Poor possum will have to get creative if they want dinner this year! The herbs sound great.

I know that you will have your bountiful harvest too! l think we should leave her behind and get on with it!
20 buckets of butter beans is a lot! Your garden must be a real wonder.
I got the lights for the winter indoor garden today and will install them tomorrow. I am hoping to make something aquaponic before spring for the experience. What else are pet gold fish good for besides lowering the stress level.

hubby is off to the hardware shop this very minute, to get rolls of wire, I'm so excited! POSSUM PROOFING! this year WE will eat well, not the wildlife (sorry possums, but you broke the agreement re sharing!!)
My herns are already netted in pots outside the dining room door, but now we have broad beans lettuce spinach carrots an on and on to go in, oooh and the solitary heirloom rhubarb that survived last year, yay yay yay!
