    Did a little trimming and cleanup yesterday. I've got veggies in the felt pots, and the brick garden bed will hopefully be wildflowers for pollinators. I'm trying to keep as many edible plants as possible, for myself and the wildlife (dandelion, false strawberry, American plantain). I see lots of birds back there so hopefully it's a nice habitat for them.

    This region is a prime ginger growing area for Australia I don't gotta try it grows itself.
    Tumeric included that stuff grows like a weed!

    You know your paying 30-40$/kg for Tumeric in the store here on the coast ginger is the same!

    I don't know why people just don't plant some for themselves.

    I'll find a good spot eventually.
    I think I harvest what I got and plant out most again.
    Maybe my termites have a preference for ginger :rolleyes:

    I've had a terrible year for growing anything, starter plants close and seeds far away, we finally have a week of sun, until now it's been rain and strong winds

    I use the carton ones
    Just cut them up and they can go into the ground without disturbing the roots

    Edit: carton should be cardboard. Sort of

    I'm hoping to get some plants in by next week.
    Just finished up the landscaping repairs yesterday.
    30 yard of topsoil added and spread!
    3 new trees.
    80# of seed and 16 bale's of straw.
    Now, let it rain!!!

    I'm impressed and surprised that these flower boxes made it through the winter. A nice pop of color outside our door

    Love me some Richmond gardens...nice work Sunfire! Something about the red brick against the green foliage and some old rosemary bush wafting its way up my nose...a real sensory treat!

    I planted out some more chili's.
    Coffee is starting to make another set of leaves
    2 mango's germinated
    Split some lemongrass and sowed some chinese cabbage.
    Green peas and mange tous did not germinate very well. Out of green pea, but will give the mange tous seed another chance.

    I'll have a nice ripe pawpaw tomorrow and won't be long before the masau are ready. Just hope I can keep the monkeys away
