Winter

It’s cold and everything is taking an age to grow, but there’s still lots of colour from flowers blooming

Ate a plateful of red & green kale with red & green chard too, the only veg going in the garden.

The cabbages are starting to heart up, but they’re not ready yet & the broccoli isn’t anywhere close either.

Lots of bulbs sprouting up – the ones I put in, daffodils, narcissus & freesias, and then I spied a bunch coming up that were planted by the previous owner’s of the house, I think they’re all different types of daffodils too. So spring should be pretty!

The broad beans look like they’ll start flowering soon, and it’ll soon be time to start planting capsicums indoors and pumpkins. Also I bought some pink fir apple potatoes, Agria potatoes, and purple Maori potatoes so it’ll be time to chit them soon.

So many things to plant too – I have the time on weekends, but haven’t quite gotten around to it yet! The pear, the berries – actually, someone is going to come clear out some bush in the backyard that is against the fence – so I might put the new berry plants there, help them get more sun & use the fence as support for them to climb. Also have these leptospermum, just small ones, but when they grow they’ll have beautiful pink flowers – I’m going to put them at the front of the house between windows.
