Why hello there 🦎 We actually got some warm weather for the first week of September/spring, so we got to see some wee lizards poking their heads out from the garden beds. Unfortunately we’ll be back to cold, wet and somewhat miserable (I say somewhat, because I actually like rain) […]
Why hello there I thought I’d take this opportunity to re-introduce myself. First of all, welcome to my Blog, ‘A Bug’s Life’. I started this Blog two years ago while I was still doing my Ph. D in Bacteriology, with the intention of writing about what life was like as […]
It’s been some time since my last garden update, but this is what’s currently going on in the garden beds. Right hand side garden bed has some dwarf broccoli, Italian parsley, sugar snap peas, a lone strawberry plant, and some rockets. I also threw in some forget-me-not seeds before, just […]
Just a short update on the autumn garden bed from the previous post. The seeds I sowed have begun to germinate! The above are dwarf broccolis… And then below we have some sugar snap peas. There’s also a pic of the yellow capsicum plant (there are also three red capsicum […]
Just following up on the tomatoes from yesterday. I managed to wash and sort through them all so that I could at least process the ones that were ripe and ready to eat. I’ve also included photos of my capsicums! They’re very cute. 🥰 I’m looking forward to eating them […]
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. […]
So, I haven’t posted a pic of my vege patch recently, so I’m doing so now… To put it lightly, it’s going gangbusters. Looking forward to eating more stuff!!
Just a short post to say Happy New Year to the readers of my blog! So far the weather has been cool to actually cold- a quintessential Victorian summer, really. But- I did catch SOME nice weather yesterday… But today it’s been really cold winds and misty rain, so… 😂 […]
Seeing as I wrote a reflective piece at the end of last year, I thought I’d keep up the tradition and write another one for this year. It’s a monstrously long piece, but that’s 2020 for you. Needless to say, this year has been an utter rollercoaster of events, so […]
Gee, these plants are going gangbusters at the moment! Every day there’s a new flower, or a bud, or leaves… it’s a daily ritual to see how they’re going. I’m really looking forward to seeing actual growing ‘fruit’- at this rate I don’t think I’ll have to wait much longer!
