It's been a busy week, but I have been slowly planting and weeding as the days have gone by. The original potato patch that I planted a few weeks ago has really been growing well, and while it will be some time before I can even steal a few tubers, the plants are definitely looking healthy…
The newer plantings are doing ok too…..
The pumpkin patch is expanding daily….
Some self sown onions (where a few of them had gone to seed early in the summer) are springing up. These are not in the way, so I'll leave them to produce "spring onions" if nothing more….
… and the recently sown beetroot are up already….
There are a few "odd" things happening. This tiny bit of rain (about 10mm over the past week or two) has made the Watsonia sprout… quite early...
The blood lilies are coming up everywhere…..
This poor little thing didn't do so well….
