Summer is in the air!! Woop woop only a month to go till it’s officially summer. Here’s my November garden for the garden share collective; the garden is coming a long nicely. I haven’t finished everything I want to do but we’ve made some good progress. The girls have been busy doing their part and cleaning out the mess that’s next to the garage; this will one day be a new orchard (all in good time). Can’t wait to buy new trees!!! woop for more fruit trees. Now what to put in!!?!
My berries and fruit trees are looking amazing. I am so looking forward to eating fresh homegrown peaches, nectarines, blueberries, tamarillos and plums, to name a few.
My potatoes are looking beautiful. They are very pretty plants in their own right. The chooks have been pretty good at ignoring the potatoes though occasional they need reminding to get out of there. I really need to mount them up again asap. Spuds for Christmas and beyond. nomnomnom.
The yacon and Jerusalem artichokes are coming a long nicely. I can’t wait to eat them and have them spread everywhere and take over yummy. I’ve never had yacon before and cant wait to try.
My bottlebrush always puts on a good show. Looking beautiful in all its glory. The bees and tuis go crazy for this tree.
I’m very exciting to share my bugalow (bug house) that I made today. I’ll share how I made it on another day. It looks wonderful I can’t wait for the ladybirds to move in.
My spring garden is looking great and I can’t wait for it to really take off when the weather heats up. Over the next month I will put down more mushroom compost and plant, plant, plant away. I want to create a bee/ predator garden, I want to take over more lawn and make a new garden at the front. Grow food not lawn. Pop over next month to see how far my garden has sprung.
