Garden Share


Where did November go in such a hurry? Certainly on the very hot days that we had it seemed to be dragging by but it was over in a flash. This post is my Garden Share post for this month and the last one for 2014. All the details about the Garden Share project are at the bottom of this post.

I have missed a few days in my garden this past month with day trips and a sojourn to the city as well and I can tell you that it is good to be back digging, weeding, watering and especially harvesting from my own little plot.

My area is still in drought but we have had 91mm of lovely rain this past month and some not so lovely hale. The minimum temperature was 8.9 deg C and the maximum 43.6 degC.

The Garden Share Collective is a group of bloggers who share their vegetable patches, container gardens and the herbs they grow on their window sills. Creating a monthly community to navigate through any garden troubles and to rival in the success of a good harvest we will nurture any beginner gardener to flourish. Each month we set ourselves a few tasks to complete by the next month, this gives us a little push to getting closer to picking and harvesting. The long-term goal of the Garden Share Collective is to get more and more people gardening and growing clean food organically and sustainably.
The Garden Share Collective runs on the first Monday of each Month

I love purple king beans, they have such a great colour. I hope the hail didnt damage any of your plants.

91mm of rain -- that's amazing. When we got about that amount in one day in February it was a record and the whole city nearly stopped. Your purple bean are gorgeous. What variety are they?

I hope you have had some rain now Tracy, although a lot more would not go astray. Gorgeous beans, you can do so much with beans and I love your flowers. Have a merry Christmas :D
