While I’ve been enjoying the abundance of spring flowers, my poor husband has been suffering from watering eyes, itchy skin and intermittent season. The biggest culprit – the jasmine and wisteria.
It’s over for another year. I’ve harvested the last of this round’s cabbages and cauliflowers and prepared the beds for my summer tomatoes, basil, eggplants, and zucchini. I’ve even chucked in some sweet corn and radishes.
I still have beans and peas on the go, but they should be all done by the start of November.
Time to set your clocks forward one hour!

Spring has sprung! (Apparently). It’s still darn cold, but it’s time to get out there and start planning for the Summer months.
THINGS TO DO IN SPRING
- Order summer seedlings
- Propagate summer seeds
- Start removing finished winter crops
- Conduct soil tests on veg beds
- Mulch veg beds, fertilise (add manure, compost and alike)
- Clean and repair outdoor furniture
- Clean BBQ
Stay tuned for more Spring posts!
