Slow Progress

Rochelle C is talking about growing Broccoli, Carrot, Peas, Silverbeet, Tomato, Zucchini from Northland

Garden in progress

The past week has been pretty slow and frustrating in our household.  My two youngest boys have had a vomiting bug (not at the same time of course!) and today it seems they have passed it to me.  Managed a couple of small jobs in the garden with some help from the now well boys who are off school today with the strike.  Their reward was a freshly pulled carrot each – one is still munching his (with leaves still attached).  The silverbeet has gone to seed and the new seedlings are a way off being productive.  Wound some of the wayward peas around their support and took off the plastic bottle protectors from the new broccoli.  The watermelon seedlings are showing their first flowers and the first zucchini is ‘little finger’ size.  It really is starting to come together though the flowers are starting to take over and enveloping the tomato plants.  Love fresh garden veges <3
