Despite neglect - there's still a lot happening

Gardener:Briars Patch

Blog Type:Mini Challenge - Meet your Neighbours, Vegetables, Flowers

Everytime I see you organised gardeners with your seeds sown I get a tug of anxiety - I tried getting the girls excited to choose some for their garden last night but one was too busy pretending she was a horse in a stable shes made in the hayshed, one was cross because I took her Chrome book off her and the other was very tired from kindy - so the seed table is lying alone and bereft in the middle of the dining room. 

I will post a pic of the vege garden in its current state before I get stuck in this weekend - I have tried to keep on top of the weeding over winter but shes looking slightly sad and neglected. As is our scarecrow Daisy-Belle we made in the challenge last year.  We have taken  her down for a refurb - she's currently lying face down outside child's stable! 

Despite all that I have still been harvesting so much - turnips, swede, peas (which have up and died on me in the last week) rhubarb, spinach, silverbeet and celery.  My parsnips are still soo tiny and it was incredibly hard to not pick the gorgeous asparagus  that has just popped up.  I put the crowns in last year so waiting very patiently. 

The wildflower garden has sprung into action - in fact the seeds have blown through a lot of the other vege beds and I am leaving them to do their thing for the moment - I think my style is a bit more messy  and intermixed than organised little rows of things ..... totally opposite to the husbands so always under constant discussions.
