Spring has been cancelled

Well, we seem to have transitioned directly from winter to summer in less than a week. I’m sure it won’t last but whilst the sun is shining I have been planting and sowing and potting up. The runner beans are in the soil, I have sown peas, potted up peppers and tomatoes and transplanted herbs… too busy to write much, but I have pictures…

I hope your weekend has been as productive as mine – oh, I did my accounts too!

    Wow, your tomatoes are well advanced! Ours just got put in the greenhouse on Monday, after the overnight temps got a little higher. We are ahead of you with peas though, with most of them now in the ground, sown in pots. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is that beans under your repurposed rotary line…..great idea. It feels here as if autumn has been bypassed or delayed…..days are still quite hot and I can’t work outside much past 8oc…..soon as the sun clears the trees, whew, it’s time to get inside.

    • Yes – climbing French beans… I’ve also sown a few pea seeds under there to see how the mix works. Not quite as hot here as with you – but good to see the sun and feel a bit of heat – it’s only a couple of weeks since we had snow!

        A segment in a recent episode of our Gardening Australia show did something similar, they planted broad beans, put their support poles in, then ran twine around it to make an enclosed rectangle…..the beans won’t need the supports yet, so on the outside they planted snow peas, which will be grown, eaten and gone by the time the beans grow up, but I guess will add some goodness to the soil. A good use of space and I’m going to try it and look, I found the episode online if you’re interested ……..http://www.abc.net.au/gardening/stories/s4457225.html

  7. Wow! Would you have grown all these wondrous plants if you didn’t have the Limery? I get the feeling that, while you were very productive before, it has given you an extra spurt.

    • You are quite right – it has been wonderful to have a dedicated space for the plants and not to have to fiddle around with balancing pots on narrow windowsills etc. The other thing is that because the limery is part of the house, the plants in there get much more attention than when they were in a greenhouse.

  9. Oooh, look at all those! You’re going to be preserving non-stop come the autumn. It’s so nice to see some sunshine – I took advantage of it myself to do a little bit of gardening (or “balcony-ing”, really) yesterday. Fingers crossed for some free basil, parsley and lettuce soon! ๐Ÿ˜€
