ColletteRedman is talking about growing Beans, Cucumber, Florence Fennel, Lettuce, Tatsoi, Zucchini from Manawatu-Wanganui

Garden in progress

I have been feeling really unmotivated the last couple of days. Must be this cold windy wintery weather. 

Everything outside the greenhouse is just growing so slowly and its just discouraging. 

All my tatsoi and pakchoy has gone to seed before I even got to use a single one of them so very dissapointed. It did however make room so I could plant some more florence fennel and cos lettuce that I grew from seed. 

I also planted some dwarf bean seedlings, that I bought, in the greenhouse where the other ones were that were destroyed by the cat fight. 

I pulled out 3 of the 6 lettuces in the greenhouse as they are starting to go to seed and planted 2 cos lettuces in there too. 

My one cucumber planted outside died, im thinking from the wind so I have replaced it with a rock melon. Im going to grow it vertically but because rock melons separate from the vine when they are ready I will have to support each fruit so it doesnt fall to its death. 

I have also planted a zucchini seedling that I bought into one of my coloured pots, not there is 3 of them. The other ones I were growing from seed died. I also have to replace some basil seedlings that have died.

I think im loosing my touch.
