Vegetable Gardening version 2, 2017

Gardening

Giving this gardening thing another go, we relocated our vegetable beds and fruit trees to the other face of the house. This is a sunnier position and looks promising. One major lesson from the past year was irrigation. Having a timer to do the watering eliminated the task of remembering to keep the little roots happy.

 The positives thus far:
  • A storm on Boxing Day last year broke our lemon tree at the base. We are happy to see it recovering and regenerating profusely, a few weeks later.
  • We have our first fig.
  • The tomatoes are clearly enjoying the new location.
The yet-to-learn:
  • Pests and diseases! Always a challenge when living with bugs.
