A pea teepee i sjust a teepee to grow my beans up @littlesez

Thank you - i was just reading back and feeling tired and then realised how crazy / non stop it was in Oz as well and I'm understanding why I'm so tired!

Had a bit of a play in the garden yesterday as it was such a stunning day, did some weeding and we planted into little pots lots of the plants out of the mini greenhouses so hope they will all be ok!

15 February
  • Planted first lines of carrots and radishes (mixed) direct sew.

23 February
  • Planted 40 Mangetoute

  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Basil - giant variety
  • Echinacea
  • Zinnias (giant variety)

I've just been through my garden planner list to see what I need to achieve this month and this is what I came up with!
April Jobs
  • 28 (yes that is not a typo!) plants to be started in seed trays or direct or planted out :panic:
  • Get structures built for peas and beans
  • Prepare new beds

I now have 19 strawberry plants in my extended strawberry bed - 6 from last year, 4 babies made last year (moved them into the lines) and 10 new I got yesterday :widesmile: I just need to get new straw for the top. The odd one is still in the middle I'm not quite sure where to move it to as the space I was going to put it now has raspberries coming up from where I moved a plant out - opps!

Plan updated, more fiddling this evening! A friend at our lunch on Saturday gave me the awesome idea of growing squash over the hoop house (which has no plastic just sturdy metal hoops) and letting them hang down so have don that, I've also got small ornamental ones to grow so should look lovely. And I'm going to hang ropes down from the apex of the hoops to the floor for the tomatoes to grow up - I'm thinking / hoping it will look very cool!

Just need to get more sleep and get some more beds sorted and put stuff in the ground, I keep getting a bit :panic: which makes me find something else to do that isn't gardening!
