September 6

Spring has sprung, the grass is riz
I wonder where all the flowers iz?

Nathan recently dug a big hole in his shed, so some of the topsoil went onto beds 3 and 4. I've turned things over a bit and poisoned some weeds. The lettuce was stepped on (by Zach, I think) and I gave up on the mulch pile; too many weeds through it.

Instead, I bought some mulch, so here is how the garden looks today:

Bed 1 is mulched. There are two broccoli plants and one silver beet down the south end. There is a long row along the east side full of peas, and a similar row on the west side full of snow peas.

Bed 2 is mulched. There is a long row along the east side full of onion seeds, and a long row on the west side full of leek seeds.

There are 5 cheap seedling trays. 1 and 2 have zucchini seeds, and 3, 4 and 5 have (what I think is) cauliflower seeds. (They came from the cauli seed pack, but I have a feeling there may have been a cauli/broc seed-mixing accident a while back.

There are also 3 kilos of brushed potatoes in the cupboard, destined to be chopped and planted in bed 5.

$27 mulch
$10 seedling trays
$3 potatoes
