End of 2014

By Scarecrow
Spring came and went quite unproductively, harvest-wise in the garden. We have been busy re-shaping the garden to create a workable propagating area and more manageable growing spaces.
Swapping sheds around, building beds and shade structures and clearing garden beds to allow for machinery to gain access to remove a large and very dead gum tree out the back.
End of 2014This tree had to be removed before any major work began on building the greenhouse and shade houses...really before most of the spring garden could be planted out.
It wasn't until mid Dec that this tree was able to be removed! But it is gone now and Doc and I have been very busy sorting out the garden!
Since August I have not been and will no longer be weighing the produce as it is harvested...I will just keep a record of which crops are being harvested. I will keep a tally of eggs and will again note temperature and rainfall with a new weather station once A) it has been installed and B) I learn how to use it!!!

Looking forward to a more productive 2015...I aim to be positive this year and set myself small easily accomplished goals for each day!!
I hope everyone has a great year in their gardens and that we all have perfect weather conditions for growing our food...or at least find strategies to work with what our climate chooses to throw at us this year!!!
