Yes yes, I know it is November! But I have been meaning to post these for a while!
I am watching Better Homes and Gardens TV show and it reminded me that I haven’t posted anything in a while. This is my October update…
I recently noticed new growth in my strawberry plant! My housemate Jess bought me this for Christmas last year and it struggled through last summer (which was sooo cold it didn’t give us any fruit), battled through winter, and now seems to think that spring is a good time to get growing!
Can you see there is also a little strawberry poking it’s head out?
Speaking of edible things… the lettuce and rocket have been going really strong this October! I got many salads out of them… one of them is right at the top of the post.
Tim really wanted me to show you our new friends – will definitely be keeping an eye out for ant-repellant ideas soon when the weather gets warmer! seems like they are living under the deck at the moment.
Here are some more plant updates:
So this was October… soon will post the November pictures. Needless to say I have been a bit busy, and while I have been watering the plants I have not been on top of the pests and something has gotten into the mint and ravaged it! Not happy. And the rocket is getting a little out of control too.
So, this weekend I plan to re pot the celery, figure out what is eating the mint (that is not me) and maybe get some new plants – I think its the right time for tomatoes so should really get onto that!
What are you planting at the moment or having success with?
