Garden Meme

This is a 'meme' I found online a couple of years ago... I don't know who to credit it to though.

Describe your gardening style.

If it doesn't feed us, it better keep itself alive, 'cos I'm not interested. I only grow edible gardens.

What was the last plant you bought?
The last plants I bought were from the Malanda Markets - a couple of small food-producing trees like Miracle Fruit, and some seedlings to get the winter garden happening faster - Chinese cabbage, rocket and some capsicums.

What were the last seeds you bought?

I actually just ordered a whole heap from Greenharvest, as I needed to re-stock my little seed collection. They have a huge variety and great service, and the seeds are always fresh and therefore viable.

When was the last time you had to pick the dirt from under your nails?

This morning.

Any big plans for the garden this year?

To eat more of the tropical staples and unusual perennials we grow here.

What was has been your biggest mistake in gardening EVER?

More than once I've planted rampant vegetables in a small space - Madagascar Bean, Velvet Bean, pumpkin vines, sweet potatoes, yams etc.

Biggest success?

Jap pumpkins are one of our favourite never-fail crops.

If you could be doing anything right now in regards to gardening… what would it be?

Harvesting, of course!

Love the photo, just makes me want to get out into the garden LOL

How about an update about your jersey cow. Your posting inspired me to get a young heifer, this from a woman who said she wouldn't milk another cow after 7 years dairy farming....

Hey Bec! I just updated on the cows the same day as I posted this Meme. :) I am glad you have a heifer, what kind is she? How old is she?

Gorgeous photo! I was just getting the dirt out from under my nails too, and have a box of seeds waiting on my dining table to be sorted out, now I've got most of my cool season planting done!
