Since we weren’t going to any open house this weekend, The Other half and I decided to spend this weekend beautifying the garden.
And since dah spent so much at Bunnings buying the mulch and soil and compost and seedlings, better use them promptly kan.
So, pagi2 Sabtu after bfast, we all dah keluar meninjau our neglected gardens.
This was how the garden looked like pre-makeover.
Berserabut dengan weeds and errant grass and unkempt plants.
Our no dig gardens. One has been madeover a few weeks ago but I haven’t planted anything in it yet sebab penat puasa and then sibuk raya.
The one on the right dah penuh dengan pegaga and near-dead chili plant and near-dead celery.
this small vege patch pulak has been taken pver by weeds.
My first job was to pull out all the near dead plants, salvaged some of the pegaga and replanting them in another vege patch and then pulling out all the weeds.
Punyalah banyak gilers weeds, macam tak habis2, hehehe.
Then, the Other half did the make over by adding some more compost, soil and mulch to the garden bed.
The ‘new’ garden bed.
Luckily we have a very good helper in the form of Miss 8. memang betul2 terer dia kerja tadi.
Aerating the garden bed…
Picking the sugar snap peas.
Mixing the seed raising mix.
Where was Miss 13 at this time?
Still in bed! Budak tu memang, kalau weekends aje, mesti nak sleep in.
After 4 hours bertungkus lumus kat the back gardens tadi, this was what we achieved.
Plenty of seeds planted and kept in the green house. We planted bok choy, chili, eggplant, watermelons, sage, mint, coriander, sunflowers, beetroot, carnations, strawberries, okra, snapdragons, snake beans.
and also the basil seedlings.
and the cucumbers.
The Other Half also berkerja keras menanggalkan the shade cloth yang dah koyak sana sini over the pergola and taking down some of the rotted wood of the pergola.
Nampak gondol and way too bright that area sekarang.
lepas penat menolong we all, she spent time playing in the garden pulak.
