(web pic of Vegepod)
Sunday, 14th January - Gus assembled the Vegepod for me. I think it took around 3 hours all up. There was a bit of swearing and skun knuckles but otherwise it went smoothly.
Once he’d finished, I filled it with bags of potting mix and cow manure...
...then I planted (from back row) green peas, Lebanese cucumbers, beetroot and in the front, strawberries.
It has it’s own spray watering system. Simply connect to hose and water for about 10 minutes each day.
I put it out in the sun then wheel it in under the pergola each night, as we have auto sprinklers that come on early each morning. Please disregard all the dandelion weeds in our lawn!
These are the bags of soil I used...
With this hot spell of weather, I have left it in the shade today as it’s meznt to reach 43C today. Eek!
More flowers on my rose, but no more shoots yet for more buds yet...
Yesterday, I received this box in the mail from Annabel at The Bluebirds are nesting ...
She very kindly sent me some succulents to plant out from her collection. Also included was a nice card, some magazine pages showing ways to make succulent wreaths and some parsley seeds too!
I also moved my succs into the shade for today. I know they like warm temps but I’d hate to lose them. How berserk has the chamber pot on the right gone?
Hmmm, this is what we face today. Hot again tomorrow before cooling off a bit on Saturday. I hate this hot weather. I think it’ll be a Woolies chook for dinner tonight!
