Just starting off...

First timer in the Yates Vegie Challenge! I’m gardening at my mum’s house where we have 4 garden beds and many fruit trees! However I rent elsewhere with just a balcony to work with.

Over the rainy weekend I weeded out three out of my four garden beds. Unfortunately for me I have some very hungry possum neighbours that like to eat a lot of what I grow so it will be a battle! They were totally overrun with weeds but I left in the celery and garlic which are both still growing. In raised planter boxes I’ve been harvesting some asparagus, and some herbs. Discovered some long lost potatoes, which I replanted into the beds, but now I am thinking I need to pull them up and wait for them to sprout first, as they haven’t sprouted yet. What do you experts say?

I was also gifted some Jeruselum Artichoke tubers from a kind neighbour so I planted those to see what happens.

I had some seedlings ready to go so I transplanted some silverbeet, kale, beetroot and more celery. Sow excited hehehehe
