:: Preparing for Spring ::
It's almost here. I am sorting seeds, planning new garden beds, buying pest control for fruit fly and codling moth, noticing the longer days and admiring the little blossoms popping up. I am dreaming of BBQ, evenings working and playing outside, and the harvests to come. My Winter vege's have been growing so slowly, but I am hoping they start producing with the arrival of the warmer weather (otherwise they might get kicked out, to make space for the warm season seedlings!) At work, and Urban Homesteading Club meetings, I am giving away seeds, hoping to get others into heirloom varieties, and the magic of 'growing your own'. If you would like a list of Australian seed companies, or can add your own recommendations, please check out this Note from my Facebook page. There are some things that are not so great about the weather warming up, and if you look closely in this photo of my broad bean flowers, you can see it!
Are you getting excited about Spring? What gardening adventures have you got planned for the warmer weather?
