What a stunning day! Welcome December and Summer:)
We had a busy working bee today with a new family joining us- Jess and her three children. Its always lovely to have children in the garden helping us plant, water, weed and of course, play!
We harvested our little garlic crop (some of which is pictured above) that fared pretty well considering the dry winter. We cleaned it off and started to braid what we could. Most of it has gone home with volunteers but some found its way to the coop where you can pick a bit up by donation.
In place of garlic we sowed tomatoes, pumpkin, cucumber, zucchini and a few other things. Hopefully the rain coming combine with the warm weather will give us a good germination rate. I’ll let you know.
We also weeded around the berry patch, that is starting to fruit nicely. While weeding Amanda discovered some snake skin, or could it be lizard skin? Shortly after she met the resident Blue-Tongue Lizard who might have been the owner.
Michael, Bruce and Christian continued working on the slope coming down from Victoria st. Pulling weeds and creating swales to slow and capture the run off.
Steve had his monthly kitchen garden workshop happening, the last of the year, where they looked what to plant now and mounded up the potatoes. The community garden is busting with potatoes at the moment! We also chatted about our workshop calendar for next year, its going to be jam-packed, stay posted for details.
The garden is glorious, so green and fruit filled. Come down any time and enjoy the space!
P.s. we have our first tap plumbed in heading north! Woot! Its happening:)
