Spring Garden Preparation
July 18, 2012
Winter in my garden is best described as “restful”, for me and the garden. The plants are slow to grow. There is not the constant need to weed, maintain, pick and monitor the garden as there is in the warmer months.
I miss collecting produce from the garden or dinner each day. We are currently picking salad greens, herbs and lemons. Our garden produce is supplemented in Winter by larger shops at the farmers market and local fruit store.
I am planning (wishing) for Spring to start. This is what I am doing for Spring garden preparation in my vegetable garden now:
I planted some potatoes awhile ago and they are thriving. Those of you who follow A Fresh Legacy on Facebook would know that we have just collected a huge old tyre and I am about to plant some more.
Technically potatoes are not ready to plant in Melbourne until next month. I am looking forward to comparing the results from the three different ways I planted potatoes. I planted some in the garden and a plant in two different types of pots to compare how much they produce. I will compare this against the big tyre.
I’m ready to feel the sun again! Are you?
