Thankfully today is bright and shiny so I could not only get outside to do some much needed work, I could also take some pictures too.
Lots of weeding in the flower beds. The chickens are happy for the bounty and I am happy to have the weeds gone (for however long it lasts).
The lemongrass is looking a bit lacklustre so I have tidied it up and divided the plant to give me more plants and invigorate it.
The past month has been a bit slack around here. That's what happens when there are work holidays for Tim, my usual routines go out the window in favour of walks, lunch dates, day trips and general laziness. Not that he is lazy but we just might be bad influences on each other.
Not a lot of planting this month.
- potted up some chrysanthemums
- potted up lemon scented geranium cuttings
- pea/ snow peas
- planted out a bare rooted rose
- sugar snap peas
- Mexican sour gherkin cucumbers
- Alpine strawberries
- citrus- mandarin and limes
Broccoli are just starting to form and the cauliflower aren't too far behind. I staggered my plantings so I'm hoping to keep them going for a while. Hoping... there's a lot of that.
We have had a few heavy frosts and the potatoes which had volunteered in the garden had been hit just a bit so I dug them up today for tonight's dinner. Lasagne with garden vegetables... yum.
Plans for July
- make a fairy garden
- weeding and tidying
- studying the seed catalogues
