In the Garden: Clearing the old...

"Garden as though you will live forever". ~ William Kent

A slight reprieve from the heat on the weekend and we put it to good use by picking the last of the corn and tomatoes from the vegie patch. We then pulled the plants out, since they were well and truly finished, and can start preparing the soil for something new.

During the cooler months we hope to grow peas and beans where the tomatoes were, and in the garden beds plant parsnips, beets, pak choy, leeks, pumpkin, onion, cauliflower and carrots. It will be our first attempt at growing veg all year round.

Still need to work on controlling the weeds, though, especially pesky cooch grass and carpet weed, which pop up all over the place with the smallest levels of moisture. How I wish everything grew so well with so little water!
