Garden plans

Monday, November 05, 2012

True spring weather it is now southerly and very fresh. Big day today with Zumba, housework and grocery shopping and a visitor coming by this afternoon. I want to harvest my silver beet today, a friend reminded me that you can cook and freeze it and use it like spinach. I am inclined to feed it to my chickens, but this is a far better idea.
My lettuces are going gang busters and it is time to plant more coriander and parsley and maybe basil, this is a rather daring concept as my garden doesn't get that much sun but I will give it a try. No tomatoes this year though, every year I swear no tomatoes and each year I try, a triumph of hope over experience, but this year I am sticking to my plan!

    You go girl! lol, I was so late getting my tomatoes in this year, don't think much will come of it. Good luck with the basil, they love the sun, I plant mine in the front garden where they get full sun, looks pretty in the flower beds too. Can't wait to make my basil pesto, handy to have for summer dishes.

Happy gardening! emoticon

    Oh, how I wish I had a place to plant a garden. Enjoy yours for me.

    Sounds good. Our garden did fair this year even with the drought.
