October 4

Bed 5 has been planted out with the pieces of 3kg of potatoes I bought (for $3 a while ago). Byron and Jasmine had fun helping me out, dropping the bits into the holes. The rhubarb I replanted just died, but the original rhubarb seems to have come up again!

Today, I took the trailer to Gillies St. and loaded it up with cut Lake Weed. I don't know what it's like for mulch, but it's free! I covered beds 3 and 4 (the pots with some seedlings are between 1 and 3 there) and the rest of the Lake Weed is at the end of bed 5. Don't know if I'll mulch the potatoes... Might mulch the strawberries, though.

  1. And looks like it was a nice day for working in the garden too. I hope your veggie crop comes up nicely. It would be nice for B and J to see the whole process through to edibility.
