Spring Progress

Following on from my planting seeds post earlier in the month, it Looks like only the Pak Choi have germinated so. Maybe the coriander and eggplants takes longer, or that their seeds are no longer viable…. I’ve sown some Buttercrunch lettuces where there appears to be no germinations ~

I have weeded a bit more of the yard, however, it is going slow, so I’m thinking I might sow some tomatoes, okra, capsicum, and Rosella into pots, and transplant them when the bed is cleared ~ It’ll take several weeks to grow them out to transplanting size anyway.

Planting seeds

After yesterday’s weeding, I finally have some garden bed space back!!
So the obvious next thing to do, is plant some seeds! I have just done an audit and threw out all the expired seeds a few months back. What I’ve got left were either not expired at the time, seeds I saved myself, or given by/swapped with others… those ones have no expiry dates on them.

I used to carefully plant seeds in rows, or seedling trays, and timed my sowing with the moon calendars ~ I don’t have the time for it now, and I don’t think it really did help me before, since I used to miss the planting days half the time, so have to wait for the next planting period and ended up sowing my seeds late, or left seedlings in their trays for too long and ended up outgrowing the trays and died…

So, my approach now is more relaxed. I just chucked some eggplant, pak choi, and what I think are coriander seeds onto the bed. Scraped the top soil a little with the hoe, and that’s it. Will see what will germinate.
