A Few Months In Tasmania

June 14, 2009 at 8:01 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

This is a slight jump from Canada. I’m now in Tasmania, have been here for a few months, and in the New Old House for about one month. 

I’m using the blog as a garden diary for the moment, in the absence of a suitable paper version.

May Roundup:

  • Top garden bed – garlic, celery and spinach seedlings. The garlic started coming in about two weeks, and more are still appearing. The seedlings have been attacked by snails and are growing slowly in cold weather.
  • Lemon (meyer) tree and blueberries (blue rose and birgitta) in pots. Planted, still alive.

June Roundup:

  • Middle garden bed – broad beans (aquadulce, crimson flowered, early long pod) still not up at two weeks. Bed improved with dolomite, and blood and bone.
  • Lower garden bed – jerusalem artichokes, rocket (wild, arugula apollo), pak choy.
  • Black currant and strawberry (temptation) in pots.
