Garden report 16/06/15

Although its been pretty darn dry here the garden is still doing pretty good. My potatoes are finally making an appearance and just about everything else is up and doing well...but patchy. Even though we have been watering using the back well it's still pretty dry. Its keeping the weeds down though so that works too I guess..lol


 I am going to have to reseed 1 plot of peas as nothing has come up. All the other pea plots look like this
Okay not quite like this, this one is a bit patchy now that I look at it..lol For the most part they are doing better

The onions are a bit patchy too. 

Beans are fairing well, but again patchy

I am going to have to reseed all of my beets. Only 1 plant came up out of two plots. So I will reseed tonight with a new seed packet and see what happens. Something also ate all my kohlrabi so those will be reseed as well.

The tomatoes and cabbage are doing great. I got 5 extra tomato plants from my MIL to fill in the gaps for the 2 that didn't survive the transplant and the 3 I ended up being short.



Our pesky fox neighbours are back again this year wreaking havoc. They have eaten/dug up my one and only pumpkin, one melon and one butternut. I hope they leave the rest and move away.



We also got the crate from Mr.P's work all done and planted. We plan on fabing up a liner next year so the whole top will be soil. This year I just used planters. I have three types of lettuce and basil growing alongside some flowers. I also have a container of spinach growing, but not in this pic 



Thanks for stopping by

  1. I'm so glad you are finally seeing some potatoes poking through! We have had the opposite problem of you, in that all of the recent rains have also brought out the slugs & snails. I KNOW that they are the reason I have barely a handful of bean plants in one particular bed. I'll be resowing them but it's just disheartening when stuff like that happens. Good luck with those pesky foxes & I hope you get some good rain soon!
