The snow peas are towering over their trellis. Lettuces are now ready for munching on. Crispy radishes are making their way into our salads. We've been picking the first of the sugar snap peas and the garlic has already poked its head up from under the soil.
The brassicas (kale, broccoli and cauliflower) are finally putting a bit of growth on, although those cabbages are still dragging the chain. Patience, patience, I know.
Unfortunately I haven't really got any further along on my To Do list. The strawberries still haven't been replanted. They're turning into a bit of a jungle and I need to just bite the bullet and rip them out so I can get the new runners in.
The basil beds also need clearing and replanting I'm sure it will happen at some point. All in good time though.
All in good time.
On the pest front, I've finally got on top of those black aphids you might remember were attacking my chives and garlic chives. I tried a few things, but in the end Eco oil delivered the goods. The chives are much happier for it. I'm going to try some of it on my citrus trees now where they've also been setting up house.
Hit the road aphids, and don'tcha come back no more!
I've got to say, it's nice to be finally eating from the garden, after a long hot summer. Nothing ever beats fresh veggies picked straight from the garden and those peas, well they are one of the finest perks.
It's a gorgeous time of the year to be pottering around the garden. My new afternoon routine sees me take a little detour there each day. Just as the sun is setting, I like to stand back and take it all in under that warm autumn glow. Munching on a few peas as I go, of course.
Yep, life isn't too shabby. Not at all.
