The garden is taking off with the wonderful warm weather we've been having! The nasturtiums are bright, the strawberries are sweet, and there is plenty to harvest. Today we picked lettuce, various herbs, various varieties of silverbeet, kale, Warrigal greens, potatoes, edible flowers and the very first broad beans! The meals we make this week will no doubt be filled with hearty greens and adorned with beautifully coloured flowers.
As well as harvesting, we planted potatoes (including some stunning teardrop potatoes and the perfect all-rounder, sebago potatoes) and mixed beans. We also noticed that the grape vine we transplanted last week is looking super healthy! It will be amazing when it is growing over our arch and we can snack on fresh grapes during working bees.
Hope to see you at next week's working bee, where we will learn how to make an insect hotel to attract beneficial critters to the garden!
