There is nothing growing in the vegie garden except for thriving herbs. Not raining (!) today so we've been out in it, fiddling around. It is all a big neglected mess but I'm going to post a few before and after photos.
|Before: big fat mess|
We weeded and dug over, moved many of the plants to clear space for new beds/planting.
I divided all the healthy but not very productive strawberry plants which are now planted in the rose garden as ground cover. I made 12 plants from 4 clumps so we'll see if they do better with more sun.
Some of the plants that were moved: parsley, tarragon,blackberries, calendula, strawberries, a ratty lavender, rhubarb.... I think that's all.
I'm going in search of a Just Joey rose this week: I ripped out the Black boy roses which were a waste of money and space so there is room for at least one.
Nice week on the cards, including coffee with a new bride one day, and a visit/lunch with some friends another day - one has some stitching on show at the "Royal Melbourne" exhibition at City Gallery at the Town Hall.
I have pie innards cooking in the oven for Jamie Oliver's Steak, Guinness and cheese pie so can now escape for an hour or so with Howards End.
