And so, it begins

Went to Bunnings to get black plastic to finish mulching the new garden area snd the had tomato seedlings. Pretty advanced ones. I couldn’t resist 

I got four different varieties of larger tomatoes as the seeds I planted were little ones 

I’ve been leaving the plants so they go to seed. The bees love the flowers and spring is not  full of abundance as yet. But I did have to empty one of the tubs.  Those plants, kale went to feed the chickens 

Nothing goes to waste here. 
Look how much they have grown. Another five eggs today 

The sun is shining and it was lovely to be outside again in the garden. But it’s still cold so I finished quickly and came back inside 

Even Trixie is staying close to the fire 

I’m very happy to at least make a small start at my summer crops 


  1. Your garden is going to come away so much earlier with a few head starts like that. Fingers crossed for no late frost.

  2. Looking good. Lovely to come inside out of the cold knowing you've done a good bit of work.

    1. I’m paying for it now unfortunately. But it will be worth it in the end. I hope

    1. Thank you. With food prices what they are, I’m going to need it

  4. What a lovely line of pots. They'll look even better with green branches full of red tomatoes
