I spent my hour in the vegie garden this afternoon, still weeding, but I managed to get one side nearly finished. I still have the mulch to do, and the other side to finish. Hopefully I can finish by the end of the week. I am currently reading "Smart Permaculture Design" by Jenny Allen, which I am loving. It's a very visual book, but with heaps of info, and the way she has written it, it's easy to read, and having done my permaculture design certificate, it is basically like a refresher course and everything she is writing makes sense. I am also planning what to plant in the vegie garden, and I want to include a lot of perennials in the garden that I don't need to be replanting all the time, and filling it in with fast growing annuals.
my hour in the garden challenge , and it is making a difference so I am happy with my progress so far. Ann and I had card class today, so some creative time today, which was good. We made these cards today
It is still very wet here too, but I am hoping that every day we get a few more breaks in the rain and then the ground will dry out. I have steered toward more perrenials, but then find I don't have a lot of place to rotate crops like tomatoes and eggplant....ReplyDelete
That's definitely worth considering, I will need to make sure I leave enough room for crop rotation, it's a bit of a balancing act isn't it?Delete
