In the Veggie Patch..

Posted August 24th, 2010 by Rob Bob : )»

Was a bit of a busy weekend out the back....

Made a small shade covering for the lettuce/carrot bed.... I recycled an old gazebo frame we kept when the cover was tossed a few years ago.....The frame was covered with 50% shade cloth & a rod was connected to the bottom of the cloth so the side flap can be raised for easy access to the Veggies.... We have a few carrots (Purple haze & All season) & lettuce (Mixed Mignonette) that have sprouted..... Very happy we be !!!!

Made a start on the Pumpkin Wicking bed on Sunday afternoon... Would like to have it finished by next weekend, weather permitting, so we can get a couple of Jap & Butternuts in this week....

B also planted our first Pineapple on Sunday.... My father has had great success growing them so we thought we would give them a shot.... Shall be leaving it in a pot until the rest of the back & front yards have been finished & we have somewhere to plant it & any others we get into the ground.....

Also, the weekly update picture from the Cabbage/broccoli bed...

They are picking up really well which is good as we are down to our last 2 cabbages & eating the stems of the last 2 Broccoli..

I also mended some fencing, installed a gate for easier access into the Veggie Patch, did a few dump runs & clipped the Chooks wings, due to them figuring out that the Cabbages are but a few quick flaps away....

Have a great one all...
