Hey, Damien - your garden space is very neat and tidy - looks great.

Can't wait to see them take off now that they are in the ground.

 

Also looks like you had some help with digging your beds!

Good luck with the permanent dog-proofing.   

 

:shame:, doggie!

 

Cheers, Paul.

 

The lawn is slowly recovering after a winter of neglect and two dogs attempting to dig to China.

 

But yeah it's coming along nicely, I did promise photos but have forgotten, I will try and get some this week.

He mate looking good! Funny about the frost I dont reckon last year was that cold, only counted one frost in my area and was still picking in July like you said so you should still have time.

I know this is probably a bit late to mention but having dirt up against the bricks like that can apparently encourage termites.. sorry to tell you that but better to say something than not. Thats what Ive been told anyway..

Thanks for the advice Jason, I might need to put something between the house and the soil then I guess... no one wants termites  :mope:

 

Quick update,

None of the seedlings have died when transplanted. and they are all liking their new home.

The OW plants are still growing and fruiting,

Dehydrated a heap of the last haul, I've run out of room in the freezer  :confused:

I need to get better at making sauces.

After all these photos it may look like I try to include my dogs in all of them, just letting you know that it's not on purpose, they just never leave me alone  :rolleyes:  :P

Great stuff! Those OW's are getting rather huge!

 

And won't be too long until the seedlings join them! :party:

oh no. that's too bad. It does look like a couple of them may pull through. I've forgotten about stuff like that so many times. especially when hardening off plants in the spring. we get huge temp swings here and i have forgotten to cover/uncover so many times. I try to set alarms for everything now. I hope they are not all lost. good luck.

Oh no - you killed the Amarillo. Hope some of them make it Damien.

Any luck? If only W.A was a bit closer, I'd send you some pods.

Well the good news, a few of the plants survived :) 2nd garden is looking great, should be really good for next season.

It seems like I'm always a year behind.

and the OW plants are getting heavy and tipping over, lucky I have the fence up.

There has been a mountain of pods this year, I've been giving them away to my friends and fam there was soo many, but decided I'd like to start trying to make sauce and get my own little label up and running

Last nights pick (found I'm getting something like this about twice a week)
