Garden Log: 9 Dec 07

A spectacular thunderstorm on Thursday night left me with 5mm in the rain gauge and cooler weather for the weekend. biggrin

This morning Doc and I removed the netting from the Stella Cherry Tree and picked a small but very yummy crop of cherries. No preserving them in Rum this year just some sweet fruit for breakfasts and dessert for a few days.

This weekend I've planted seeds of herbs to go into a new Herb Bed I'm planning for Medicinal and Tea Herbs . Actually it will be a re-vamp of the Pergola Garden area.

Into Punnets:
Borage - Borago officinalis from Select Organic seeds
Caraway - Curum carvi from a herb packet from the shop.
Tooth Ache Plant - Spilanthes acmella from Isabell Shipard
Small Flowered Willow Herb - Epilobium parviflorum from Eden seeds
Dill - Anethum graveolens from Select Organic seed
Florence Fennel - Foeniculum dulce from Greenpatch Organic

Into Cell Trays:
For planting as living mulch and also in the Herbal Tea Bed.
Lucerne 'Sequel' - Medicago sativa from Green Harvest
Red Clover - Trifolium pratense from Green Harvest

Also into Loo Roll Holders to allow planting at a stage when they will be able to withstand bug attack, but not too big. These are for the chooks.
Sunflowers Giant Russians from Edens and G in Victoria.
Sorghum White African - Sorghum bicolor from a seed saver via SSN

I've pulled up most of the White and Red Onions on Bed 4 and have left them to dry for a few days before storing away.
