Summer garden update 2022 🌱

Well, as predicted, it’s been a very mild summer thus far. I’m not complaining- I hate warm weather, so this is great. 😂 So far the heirloom tomatoes I planted are growing like crazy. No 🍅 as of yet, though. You can see strawberry plants either side, but so far […]

What season is it again? 😅

Autumn garden 🌱 🍅 🫑

It’s been a while since I’ve written about my garden beds. With the temperatures quickly dropping (particularly where I am now, which tends to be colder than Melbourne), I decided to remove some of the remaining tomatoes and start on the autumn crop. Tomato season wasn’t the best this year. […]
