We recently had our first rains for the season, and I can see the difference it has made to the garden.
Last year, in my first attempt at a veggie garden, I planted a whole bunch of spinach, none of which sprouted. It turned out the seeds washed into the lawn, and we suddenly had spinach growing in between the grass. We carefully transplanted a couple of the plants to the ‘leafy’ bed (where I planted the other spinach seedlings, lettuce and morogo) and they are absolutely flourishing.
We also rescued some lights from my mother’s (now ex) garden recently. They are really great. They switch on slowly as the light starts to fade and casts a nice, gentle light on the garden all night long.
This week-end I will be planting out the last of the seedlings, other than the herbs, and then I start all over again.
