Replanted the Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Soup Celery and added some Parcel to the wicking bed in the Almond Area after Gingey Chook found her way into it and ate the first lot.

Pelargonium 'Madame Salleron'

In the Garden This week:

I emptied the new chooks' house
and used the bedding mix to build up a new compost heap.
See basics of compost making HERE

In the Edge Bed in the Kitchen Garden the Yarrow,
Garlic Chives, Sage and Greek Oregano
were all trimmed.
The Tree Onions and Shallots dug up
and divided for planting elsewhere.

The 2 old Chooks, Blackie and Gingey, have finally accepted each other and now live in the same run! That was after Gingey had decimated the wicking bed in the Almond Area! Just as well I had some backup stock of seedlings for replacements.

We said goodbye to Old Luckydog on Saturday. See Here sadsadsad
