Rocket, shallots, bok choy and lettuce
Some herbs, beetroot and baby squash not quite ready to plant out yet
In our garden, Spring isn't so much a time for showing off flowers, as it is preparing for Summer. We've been pruning, weeding and mulching. John has been shredding all the prunings to make mulch for the garden. I have been doing some mega-weeding. The weeds have been flourishing with this warm weather. We bought a couple more trailer loads of our favourite soil improver - mushroom compost and aged cow manure and dug it through the gardens.
Baby Golden Cane Palms
Dozens of little palm trees had self-seeded in the garden. I don't know if any will survive but I couldn't just throw them in the compost bin. I'm sure (if they do survive) we'll find someone who wants them.
Some cuttings ready to plant out soon - mainly coleus
I've started removing pups from the bromeliads and repotting them.
A few op shop finds have been planted with succulents
Amongst all of this work in the garden there's been a patient to care for. Poor Missy hasn't been able to do much supervising for the last few days. She's been sick. After a visit to the vet, some medication and some TLC she seems to be on the mend now. She's started looking for her dinner again which is a good sign. It's strange not having the supervisor making sure I'm doing it right.
