Winter Gardening August 2013 – Garden Share Collective
August 5, 2013
Welcome to this months garden update as part of The Garden Share Collective, hosted by Strayed From The Table.
The new fruit trees have beautiful buds appearing and waiting to burst forward as the weather warms. It is comforting and exciting when all goes to plan with new trees.
I took most of the compost pile out of it’s bin and dug it into a patch I am preparing for new strawberry plants. This space was previously held by our chook pen. I am very much looking forward to a bumper strawberry crop.
Banking up the leeks in a bid to blanch the stems. I wrote about this late last week. You can read about my tips for growing leeks here.
Building up the straw around the potatoes – these potatoes re-sprouted from last year’s crop in the old tractor tyre Mr Fresh bought home one afternoon for this purpose. Very romantic 😉
These are the things I have planted in my garden over the last few weeks.
See you again at the start of Spring.
Be sure to visit some of the other members of the Garden Share Collective to see how their gardens are progressing. I have discovered some great new blogs via the Collective. The great thing about it is that there are blogs from each state in Australia and also other countries so you should be able to find someone’s garden growing similar things to you.
