I cannot confess to having spent a great deal of time in the garden, and it shows, some of the weeds are getting very ugly.
In fact this weekend was devoted solely to picking stuff!
Strange story though - I dug up a few potatoes and was surprised to see that there were only a couple per plant... I don't know why this is, as they seemed to be growing so well?? Maybe I need to leave them longer.
Apart from the weeds, many things seem to be growing well, including the tomatoes, the potimarron, the onions (which have splendidly thick necks) and the parsnips. However one of my Qld Blue pumpkins seems to have died and so has one of the melons. I will try to plant some replacements this weekend, I don't think it is too late.
My broccoli seems to be taking off, there are at least 12 plants that have come up past the seedling stage. I will thin them out a bit later on. And the green beans we planted last weekend have sprouted quite well. It has rained and I think that if we get some more sun, a good growth spurt should happen.

Good for people to know.
