Autumn 2011 veggie patch startup again
Well, it's that time again!
The rains have returned, and it seems not much survived summer.
After removing dead stuff and Rob rotary hoeing the long beds, applying mulch to retard weed growth, it's time to plant winter growing veggies.
Bought seedlings of broccoli, heaps of herbs a few roses and today, a mulberry tree!
Today I spent the entire morning sowing seeds in trays and the ground.
I've done peas, carrots, spinach, celery, silverbeet, beetroot, kohlrabi. lettuce, shallots, onion, Chinese broccoli, and lots of others.
I can't wait!!!! The rain will do all my watering for me!
Amazing feeling, gearing up again.
I love this feeling so connected to the earth, rain, sun!

Hi Deb-- Good to hear from you again.
Hi there Sjoerd,
Well, first setback. I bought a little greenhouse to start seeds off. We've just had a big blow, and it toppled over, (it was on the verandah) sending seedraising mix and seeds along the verandah, and smashing pots. Blow!
