Mmmm sounds good Lynn.. I'm missing fresh veg from my garden. Now that I am officially on holiday from a year of study.. I can concentrate in getting my garden up to scratch for a few months before I hit the books again.

Sounds marvellous Lynn. I am not having much luck with cucumbers and courgette this year at all. Must be something in the air!! Also not had a strike of carrots.

While I've been eating many things from my garden for the past several weeks and have not had to buy any vegetables (YAY!), today saw the first harvested cucumber. A Lebanese cucumber, delicious! All gone now! LOL - made a cucumber, carrot and beetroot salad, with herbs - everything harvested today. Fabulous...and loving it!

Richard, have you got a photo of the compost? Be great to see it.

we built a 2 cubic metre biodynamic compost pile on Monday - the first of three planned. And we put a water heating coil in it so our semi-wwoofers can shower.

I don't have any problems with birds Sheryl [except in late summer when they attack the tomatoes] 

I would think the only point to consider with rocket around tomatoes is the size/height - but I guess it would be alright - by the time the rocket gets to full grown size the tomatoes will be well up and away. I always trim rocket anyway as it always bolts to seed.

Can I throw rocket seeds around my tomatoes instead of lettuce?

I take it then Rex that you have a new way of beating the birds. The little beggars are giving my perpetual spinach a hiding at the moment. Am going to get the netting out today. Am wondering if the coloured silverbeet would be less inviting to them.

Haha sure did find a space for that one Kali. They are all looking good so hoping for a good harvest.
