Starting off the garden

I share most things publicly on Google Plus, so I think that you'll be able to see everything if you want to by clicking below: ( - Photos of the backyard and what's already there, before I put the new plants in. Also, bonus kitty... Read more

Posted by Serene on February 10, 2015 at 15:21"

Dusting off my Growstuff account and getting ready to put things out in the garden. I don't have an especially green thumb, and I know nearly nothing about gardening, but I so want to grow food. And pretty things. Yes. Food and pretty things. My life story. Anyway. At work, I have a... Read more

I want to plant asparagus bulbs that I just purchased. The hardiness zones says to plant for a spring planting Jan - Mar. The package says to plant after the last frost. Which one is right?
It was a long winter   1

I have dodged my garden for a year. The sorrel and kale have survived being completely ignored and unwatered over winter but for rain. One little spring onion has hung on in the tiniest form. Bless. The flat leaf parsley went to seed productively. The passionfruit vine tried to grow into the... Read more
Herbs   1

Posted by Cesy on January 16, 2015 at 12:23"

My herbs are all dead again. I can't figure out if it's lack of water, if they don't like the semi-shade, if I need to give them more food or compost or what. :( At least the aloe vera is flourishing. And, in true Murphy's Law, I haven't burned myself since I got it, so I haven't needed to... Read more

Optimism is... planting butternuts at Christmas

Like I said in my last post, everything has been late and disorganised this spring. However, I'm trying to get some stuff planted *juuuusssssttttt* under the wire for December, and hopefully they'll have time to grow before things cool down in the new year. Last year I was pretty amazed how... Read more

A slow start to summer

Posted by Skud on December 18, 2014 at 22:49"

I'm so very, very behind on my gardening. I was travelling heaps and had lots of other commitments through October/November, which is peak spring planting time here, and nothing got done. I've come to the realisation that if I'm going to do work that involves that sort of travel, I need to cut... Read more

Blooming lemon tree   5

What the everliving what. My lemon tree is blooming in November. Is this common in lemon trees?

Surprise! I got home from work yesterday and discovered my husband had finished the brickwork around the veggie garden. He says he'd started moving the bricks from their pile to get them off the driveway, and well the logical place to put them was where they belong, and then halfway through he... Read more
