As usual our Saturdays in Spring will be filled with doing gardening. So, my Saturday entries pun sure lah akan banyak pasal our gardens aje kan .
About a month ago, we have started getting the vege patch and garden beds ready for planting. We added mulch, new soil, straw, compost and fertiliser.
And hari ni, we spent an hour at Bunnings (again! Macam dah takde tempat lain nak pergi every Saturday kan, hahaha) choosing the seedlings to be planted.
Sebenar2nya, we’ve bought so many packets of seeds to be planted tapi entah lah, we all ni dengan seeds tak banyak luck pulak. Occasionally aje they sprouted and grow nicely.
Tu yg beli seedlings aje, at least I know they’ll live.
Some of the seedlings we bought. Mixed capsicum, strawberries, silverbeets, sugar snap peas, lebanese cucumbers, marigolds, mixed basil. We also bought a couple of cherry tomatoes.
Last year we planted the strawberries in hanging baskets. This year we still have the strawberries in the hanging baskets tapi saje je nak try tanam them in the garden bed.
This garden bed pulak we set aside untuk tanam herbs aje this Summer. Masa Winter haritu we had lettuces in this bed. The parsley and celery tersangatlah happynya kan!
Banyak kan tomato plants kat this vege patch. We didn’t plant them. Diaorang grew by themselves from seeds leftover in the compost. So memang tak tau lah macam mana rupa tomato yang keluar nanti, hehehe.
A row of some more sugar snap peas along the metal trellis. And a row of silverbeets next to them.
These are the sugar snap peas I planted a few months ago tak silap and now dah berbuah. Miss 7 sangatlah2 happynya sebab ditugaskan memetik the peas.
They are so sweet and so fresh makan raw macam tu aje.
Whilst we all kat luar, Miss 12 ditugaskan masak breakfast. Pancakes from pancake mix, tinggal tambah air dan shake like mad.
That’s why dia dengan senang hatinya volunteer masak breakfast, hehehe.
