New plantings!

In celebration of the approach of Spring, we’ve started 6 Tiny Tim tomato seeds in the mini-greenhouse.

We also cleared out the front beds under the palm trees on the weekend, and dug through some sheep manure.

Like magic, my Green Harvest parcel arrived, and we planted out the galangal & some ginger (plus one experimental cassava cutting) straight away.

The other cassava cuttings will go out back, along with some more ginger. I’ll need to get the turmeric & comfrey potted up this weekend, so we can plant them in a month or so.

I’m especially happy to be starting to work through some of the plantings I planned in my permaculture design course. It really helped me past some of my indecisiveness around planting. It may not all work out perfectly, but we won’t know until we try!

I also fed & mulched the pomegranate & fig tree, & weeded & mucched the asparagus. i’m going to give the whole veggie bed a big sprinkling of pelleted chook poo & some seaweed tonic on the weekend, too.
