The Return of the Sun!


Winter in the summertime, the great 2009 cull, dramas at school, split shifts at work and the birth of our son, all did their part in putting spending time in my veggie garden well and truly on the back-burner for the last couple of months.

Only my herbs, some snow peas and one very poor looking tomato plant survived the extended neglect and now that the sun has decided to peek around the edge of the building again it’s time to get back into it.

I spent a good hour yesterday sweeping and scrubbing the tiles and junking lots of sickly plants and getting set up. I may have been a bit advantageous this morning but the garden now has new plantings of:

Buk Choy
Pak Choy
Snow Peas
Reggae Roma Tomato
Swiss Chard
Garlic Chives

Now if only the rain would go away and let the sun come out in full force!
