The warm season begins.

Tuesday, 31 May 11 Sunny 24°C / 75°F

And there’s the tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and strawberries planted. The wind yesterday was hideous; I’m very glad the seedlings didn’t have to deal with it. The chard remaining in the main bed was thrashed about and I definitely see us pulling most if not all of it later this week – especially as clearing out the chard would give us more room for tomatoes. Hmmm. Also sowed absolute loads of Fino Verde and Genovese Basil in the main bed and in some containers.

Found a cabbage looper caterpillar on the outside of the main bed and chucked it right over the fence into the common. Let it eat grass.

We’ll definitely harvest the remaining containers of kale and spinach in a day or so we can get the beans in.

Exciting times, yes indeed.
