Lost 2 more trees during the week after very high winds. Will need to replant some shrubs and trees to replace the ones we have lost.
Poured with rain from Friday afternoon round to Sunday morning.
Went to local nursery to buy a selection of plants to replace the ones that we have lost during the stormy weather. All indigenous to the local area.
Planted out a new Kaffir lime and a native finger lime into the orchard area. Removed the non productive passion from the chicken coop, to be replaced by a new one that will hopefully fruit! Staked and tied up a couple of shrubs that were squashed by falling trees.
Planted some more seeds: tomato (various), bergamot, peppermint, coriander, dwarf beans, sunflowers and Stevia. A bit late for some but better late than never! Forecast shows weather warming up so might be able to plant out some of the veggie patch soon.
Have a few cucurbits germinating in my mystery box, will transplant when a little bigger.
Weeded small areas of front garden then ran out of weekend! Spoke to work about going part time from next year..... waiting to get a decision. No reason for them to decline, and this would massively help with work life balance / maximising food production and moving towards a simpler lifestyle. Hoping to hear back from them this week.
