In the Garden This week:
A New Year Begins...The final planting for Trees For Life seeds
now I wait for cooler weather
and maybe some rain for them to grow!
A New Year Begins...Before the heat arrived I planted out some Zucchini Cocozelle in Dog Pen Wicking Bed 2 with a small Nasturtium as their companion.
A New Year Begins...I added more Beetroot and Kohlrabi to the bed next to that one (Bed 1) where the original planting has done well under the hopper-free netting.
A New Year Begins...We have harvested the cherries for this year. No as many as other years but I think we were lucky to get any at all after the year the tree has had. To help it survive the heat we have covered it and the adjacent area with 50% white shade cloth.

A New Year Begins...A New Year Begins...
With stronger winds up on the hill our shade cloth was flapping a bit too much so Doc attached a length of PVC tubing between the hoops of the shade to neaten it up and give it more support. Looks neat and tidy now! The cucumbers didn't appreciate the hot windy conditions at the site but everything else has settled in well!
