I had to pull up some sweet potato plants for when we did the back fence.
Tricky part: persuading the neighbour not to paint or treat the fence with anything that might turn out to be toxic for my plants.
Wombok (I think)
More old fence:
Still more old fence:
The root vegie garden - rocket and carrots and parsnips and leeks and a bunch of other things, most of which aren't growing at all.
New fence being put up (early morning light makes it tricky):
More new fence (from same POV as the old fence photo above)
And the long view of the new fence:
I chopped down all the basil and made pesto:
That was a weekend of preserving, actually. Last of harvest: red tomato chutney, green tomato chutney, preserved lemons, and pesto. Everything but the lemons came from the garden, and I swapped the lemons for lemongrass I did grow in my garden! #gardenofsel #relish #preserves #homecooked #homemade
I pulled up the only parsnip that I'd managed to grow:
I've planted more parsnips, but they're not actually growing. They're difficult to grow apparently - need good sandy soil and the opportunity to grow straight down...
I'm thinking of pulling up the carrot seedlings and planting them out in boxes of sandy compost.
