How Does Your Garden Grow?
Old Jack Frost has claimed his first casualty last night. In the second picture in the front of the frame, you may be able to make out the dead pumpkin plants. Considering it was -3 overnight last night, we are surprised that that we only lost one lot of plants.
The surviving plants are: Broad Beans, Chives, Silverbeet, Broccoli, Cauliflower and Strawberries!
Oh well, now we know that pumpkin really shouldn't be planted in autumn like how the instructions stated!
Both the boys are enjoying the garden, and do like to check on things.Braeden tends to like throwing the straw out and Ryley tries to pull the plants out, but hey, at least they are interested...sort of! We still plan on building another vegie garden box, just have to wait until David can find some more wood. The second vegie box is made from an old bridge that he had to remove as part of his job. So has anyone else had success (or not) with planting vegies? The strawberry plants have come from Veronica who is a much better gardener than me! So they were very healthy to begin with.
Fingers crossed we can continue with our bumper crop and be able to reap the benefits in no time...!
