Back to Basics Weeks 9 & 10

With the computer out of action, I missed a week posting but I will catch up here.

Sowing or Planting:
  • Beans-Ying Yang
  • Beetroot, mixed variety from New Gippsland seeds
  • Sweetcorn 5 rows
  • Pumpkin- Marina di chioggia

Planted out some of the tomato seedlings. There are 25 plants in the garden now with more to plant out.


  • strawberries
  • broad beans (they are large now and need to be shelled)
  • lettuce
  • onions
  • wet garlic
  • 1 tomato
  • mulberries
  • herbs
  • flowers

Ying Yang bean seeds

  • Had the kitchen measured up for installing a new kitchen in the (hopefully) not too distant future
  • Thinking about The Anyway Project
  • Thinking about new ways to house the poultry sitting on eggs as we lost a clutch of eggs due to wet weather.


  • Setting up yards and shedding for the ewes for lambing due to start this week


  • My son finished his initial training as a volunteer fire fighter
  • potted up tomato and borage plants for my husband to plant at work
  • gave an impromptu tour and talk about our orchard
