Plans for planting

I ‘m going to go with the moon planting timetable, and put some seeds in on the 15th, on the First Quarter. Very exiting to think that by the time they’re ready to be planted out, we’ll be in our new house.

I’ve already started chillis, zucchini and cucumber, and they’ve all germinated nicely. I ‘ll pot some seeds of eggplant, capsicum and pumpkin on the 15th.

We’ve investigated solar, and are a bit concerned that our roof may not be big enough for the 12 panels we’ll need to get 2 kw (which is what we really want). We need to get some guttering replaced, so we’re hoping to get the water tank installed at the same time.

The front garden has a northerly aspect, so that will be the location for the veggie beds. We ‘ll do a couple of raised beds, no dig style, to begin with. I’m also hoping to put in a permanent sweet potato bed along our fence line. Hopefully the colourbond goes down deep enough that they won’t get invasive.

We’re getting excited now 🙂
