This is how the new garden is coming along:
Thankfully with a combination of sage, clay butterflies, and white pansies planted around the Brassica they are all growing beautifully now, hole free and without eggs on their leaves.
The capsicum are producing beautifully small, sweet fruit.
The lemon tree is producing again now as is the feijoa tree. To date I have collected about 6 kilos of fruit off the feijoa tree and have been making jam, fruit leather and muffins with them.
The garlic is sprouting and will hopefully produce beautiful big bulbs this year. There are around 100 plants in this year, at least double last year’s number.
The Garden Share Collective is made up of a group of blogs from around Australia and the world who write a monthly garden update to share their love of a productive garden, their tips and triumphs are inspiring so grab a cup of tea and be sure to visit a few. The Collective is hosted by Strayed from the Table.
How are things progressing in your garden this month?
