I am really enjoying my garden right now. I have mulched and fed more areas within the greenhouse over the past two days. I planted out the peas against a rustic trellis made from a broken baby safety gate. I also planted out some rocket, red cabbage, corn, Italian and broad beans.
Today I planted another ten punnets of seedlings-to-be. Who knows where I'll plant them out, though! That's presuming success. A few varieties of seed were old, and not all fitted into the mouse-proof cage I'm using to protect my seedlings. The last lot did so well- only the purple-podded peas didn't germinate.
So far everything is growing fantastically - this weather makes it easier! I've harvested a lot of cucumbers and pumpkins, a handful of beans, the odd cherry tomato, plenty of salad and cooking greens ... and we're still enjoying and giving away many macadamias. And the chickens are mostly laying again - hooray!
Locally - citrus, chokos, pumpkins and bananas are doing really well. We're lucky to have friends and neighbours sharing their excess with our family. I can't wait until our gardens and orchards are more productive so that we can have an abundance to share too. Growing and eating local food is really important to me. Meanwhile, I'm happily passing on nuts and pumpkins to those who have none, and accepting others' abundances to eat and preserve.
