This photo is a Turkish Turban Pumpkin Seed, with my bush peas in the distant background,
Arrgh a discovery of very smelly seed pot. My beans have been to wet and have disintegrated? They have rotted in the punnet..Though a tomato seedling has grown, somehow got into this punnet by accident. Lesson learned. BEANS WILL ROT IF TOO WET!.. so I will be bleaching this seedling punnet and re potting it. I am adding some fresh soil and potting mix to the stuff in the pot and will use it again to plant some new beans. Allowing the soil to not be saturated. I have been a murderer to beans!
Well a lesson learned!
The photo above and to the right is a mortgage lifter tomato seed just coming up, and the one below is a White climbing tomato.
I have also been trying to work out what to do for watering the vegie garden. I really love hand watering as I usually pull a few weeds, and get a real feel for what is growing, needing some help or being eaten in the garden. Such a relaxing past time, that I think will take about 30-40 mins but I always nearly end up out in the garden for a couple of hours. Hopefully remembering to go and turn the tap off at the tank, before I tie up, weed, or pick.
First Iris of Spring
You have to make sure that the saucers sit fairly firmly and flatly on top of the pots to avoid little bugs drowning. (not such a bad thing for the baddie bugs, I guess).
So it is a fairly simple process and gives quite a lot of water in each pot. Over a litre. So I will keep you up to date with the workings of my pot watering system.
It was a funny day here today, it was warm, and sunny, so I went out and did quite a bit of weeding. I also have been putting some blood and bone around to fertilise the garden. Having been told that the rabbits are not keen on blood and bone was an added incentive to spread it today as we have so many rabbits eating and digging about. Fingers crossed it will work.
