Way too cold for me to be doing any seed planting now instead I have been digging up a variety of volunteer seedlings, replanting them around the garden and potting them up for later planting...much easier than expecting any seeds to germinate in this weather!

Alyssum Lobularia maritimae 
Bronze Fennel Foeniculum vulgare nigra
Canary Island Lavender Lavandula canariensis
Celery Apium graveolens var. dulce 
Coriander Coriandrum sativum

Motherwort Leonurus cardiaca

I have been collecting Kitchen scraps and weeds for compost and pilling them up in one of the tank beds that has been moved from the MVG. In Spring this tank will grow some Trombone Gramma in the Old Chook Run Garden. I am now starting another of these compost beds in the Almond Area with one of the bigger bed surrounds ready for some pumpkins.
