Hello Lovely Gardeners

We now find ourselves in late summer and while it feels hot and summery right now, towards the end of the month there will be a noticeable change in the feel of the air.  But that is ages away and not to worry about now! 

Although we do need to start thinking about the cool season crops and start deciding what we want to grow, planning where they will grow and gathering seeds.  It is always exciting to be at the seed sowing stage again, although this time it is a little bit bittersweet as it does mean the current growing season coming an end. 

I am in two minds about the end of the season, as some things like my tomatoes have done terribly and I just want to put that aspect of the season behind me.  However other things are doing really well so I can’t really complain all that much.

I also want to say a big thank you for your patience.  We ran into some teething troubles with the community page at the start of the year and it took a while to sort out, but we are back up and running as normal so look forward to seeing your garden updates and continuing our conversations from last year. 

I’ll be here every Monday (although today is a Tuesday thanks to the public holiday yesterday) so if feel free to leave a comment if you want to have a chat. 

Have fabulous week in the garden.

Happy Gardening.
