Ok folks … spring is almost here so I thought I’d start a thread to remind y’all to plant some herbs in pots, a punnet of strawberries, tomatoes, basil whatever you can. And post pics !!
The spirito patch has done OK over the winter. Broccoli and rainbow chard have been the stars. Lettuces too. Leeks and beetroot are starting to come on song. Parsley hasn’t done too well over the cold months, but the coriander is going fine. Last years passion fruit vine is really starting to stretch out - not a day goes by without Mrs. Spirito asking when they’ll start to fruit. Gai lan is Ok, as is the tuscan kale.
Biggest disappointment/frustration has been the snow pea’s, sugar snap pea’s and broad beans. Farkin’ possums have feasted on my legumes !!! Planted sugar snaps 3 times and each time they’ve been decimated. No amount of garlic, chilli oil and tobasco has deterred them. I’m starting to stress because it’s soon time to plant tomatoes. If those possums touch my tomatoes there will be hell to pay. Motherfarkin’ possums !!!
Medo has been a big help (as usual).
