I haven’t done any summaries about the garden lately, but with another glorious burst of spring sunshine, I got out into the vegie patch on the weekend. There was a badly needed job of re-tying all the Broad Beans…. we had 2 days of 60+ km/h winds, with gusts forecast of up to 100 km/h, and they had all been whipped back and forth. We lost a few stems to breakage, but all the rest just needed to be carefully bundled up and tied.
Still no beans, but I read about them that they need the warmer weather to start setting beans, so hopefully we will be getting some soon.
All the little cheap seedlings I bought in the sick plants section have gone well… not bad for $1 each.
Spinach is going into a Quiche tomorrow for a quick and easy dinner, will do an extra one for the freezer, as we have an over-supply of eggs!
Of course, no garden post would be complete without a couple of pictures of our feathered friends. Of the four chickens, the pure Light Sussex, Rebekah, has suddenly decided that tame and submissive gets her more attention, and most importantly food. We are all her rooster apparently 😉 and she will be patted and picked up as long as there’s a possibility of food!
Spring hasn’t just sprung in the garden beds either!! We had pizza last night and the dough was so springy, it rose straight out of the tub!
I blame it on the spring sunshine! It’s been wonderful, everyone I speak too has said they feel like they are coming alive! It’s been a particularly cold and grey time up until now. This weather certainly isn’t doing anything springy by halves!!
DS 2 had an adventure in the sunshine today, I need to edit the photos and then will post them all in a day or two. And don’t worry, there will be sewing and patchwork updates too! Busy busy around here!
