What's happening in the garden?

No planting or propagation happening in the garden this week...I have been busy collecting photos and specimens of plants for my course work!

In my spare time I'm busy taking that seed list and deciding which veg to plant where and when.

New in the Garden This week:

Doc let me buy a heated propagating tray that will not only help with seed germination but also the harder to take cuttings that would benefit from some 'bottom heat'.

This Noisy Miner Manorina melanocephala was busy picking the fraying threads off my clothesline...it's nesting time around here and the birds are 'borrowing' the strangest things! At least this one didn't leave any little messages behind! wink

Weekly Harvest Tally:
Doesn't include Greens fed to the chooks on a daily basis or herbs picked for use in the kitchen for cooking or tea making.
