Out the back the Pathside Edge Bed has had a tidy

one last cauliflower and guess what...

...it's a purple one! eek

Earlier in the week I put this patch of Nettles into a plastic rubbish bin to brew up some more Plant tea for using later in the season.


The first planting of Potatoes are showing their heads and I've just planted a double row of Blue Sapphire potatoes. Well protected under their Bread Crate covers. Doc moved some loam into the chook run for hilling-up the potatoes as they grow. Thank you Doc!

Speaking of being protected...
... the Queensland Blue Pumpkins
are doing well inside their safety prison.

This is a shot of a Wicking Tub that was planted earlier in the year with volunteer seedlings...some Perpetual Spinach, Dill and Coriander that have grown well...the spinach was tasty for lunch today! I love the freebies the garden gives. mrgreen
