Thursday's Garden Group Visit

During this last week we have had two groups of garden minded folk visit our garden. All were impressed by the Wicking Worm Beds.

With a Saturday market in between the visits we have been very busy but as a result I have sold most of my excess seedlings.


Thank you to all who visited it was a pleasure to show you around our productive garden.




Planting:
Two lots of seeds from Edens with their catalogue descriptions:
Onion Ailsa Craig...
"Huge round mild tasting bulb, straw yellow coloured sometimes near 1kg, sweet Spanish type, long keeper, perfect for exhibition."
Garden Sorrel (Rumex acetosa)
"Perennial. Leaves used for making soup and flavouring salads, or cooked as a vegetable. Said to contain vitamin C and copper. Sow autumn and spring."
I've potted on the Cabbage - 'Purple Flowered Choy' and 'Red Choi' seedlings that were up and ready.





Spotted in the Garden This week:

This tiny "moth" sized bird. (Anyone know it's name?)



A nest of Preying Mantis eggs on the Cherry tree.





Weekly Harvest Tally:
Doesn't include Greens fed to the chooks or herbs picked for use in the kitchen for cooking or tea making.
Cucumber Lemon***128g
Tomato Tigerella***53g
Zucchini Costata Romanesco***2364g
Zucchini Black***342g


No fruit weighed this week just further grazing on Grapes and Red Fuji Apples.

Plus a yummy mix of greens for salads...Kale, Lettuce, Watercress, Lebanese Watercress, Chives, Parsley, Gotu Kola.

Plus 14 Eggs from the girls.


All this along with trying to fathom out a new computer system...and the arrival of 5 new study modules in the mail.


I do really need to catch up with life!

Please remember Earth Hour this coming weekend...turn off your lights for 1 hour!
