And one more thing, does anyone eat Jerusalem artichokes? I roasted them the other night, all the kids said "Yuck" and I wouldn't go for them again unless I had no other root veges to choose from. I wondered if anyone out there had a better way of cooking them?
Lance use to prune apple trees for a job, I found his tools today. I Love pruning!
See I've mulched more beds here with pea straw and seaweed over by the naughty chook ( prison) run. They go on weeding duty in this run if they get in the garden. No one's in there at the moment as they're all behaving and laying eggs.
Other jobs being done this month: Half the pruning is done, the rest is waiting for the last quarter of the moon next week to finish it off.
I'm not doing carrots at the full moon, my garden's too cold and wet but I've got pea seed in behind the asparagus right up against the fence where it's a little warmer.
The brassicas in the glasshouse are looking very happy on a diet of worm juice.
Cuttings of grape vines are done but there's still plenty of time to do cuttings of berries, grapes, herbs etc.
Tree tomato looks dead in the frost. Passion fruit is holding on.
Seeds are sorted ready to plant in the next first quarter. I'll do hardier herbs and veges in the glass house and tomatoes and peppers on the window sill inside. Feeling more low maintenance excitement here!
Not feeling like going back to work!
Finished this cutey, cutey kimono cardy too. Not too sure yet weather to sell it or gift it to someone so I can see it being worn.
