No single raindrop believes it is to blame for the flood
I now have 5 of the 7 beds I plan to use for veggies ready.
The other two have to wait for a different project (one is completely empty as in no soil at all, the other is covered in a heap of sand and stones).
I am just watering them constantly to get the weeds to grow and the soil moist all the way through.
Once I have garden beds full of weedlings I will poison the lot and that will save me a ton of weeding in future.
I also attacked all the beds with my HP water sprayer yesterday to level them out and get rid of any clumps of soil.
I ask because I planted some myself but.. they haven't faired as well as expected Granted I planted them a little deep, and watering was suspect in the beginning, but most of all they aren't meant to planted during the winter..
And overall how's your veg garden doing?
I do have some cherry tomatoes growing as well as some red onion but the cherry tomatoes were accidental (about 2 years old now as well) and the red onion will be moved into one of my garden beds shortly.
None of my seeds have sprouted as yet, I expect that will start happening any day now (only been 7 days tonight since filling the trays).
Harvested (and still growing):
Tomatos (several fruit getting closer to harvest).
Carrots (pulled one up, about 5cm long now).
Gem Squash (several fruit getting closer to harvest).
Okra (the rain drowned my last plants, had to start again).
Also have some promising rose cuttings
