These beautiful David Austin roses called Strawberry Hills are blooming in the backyard.
They're a lot brighter than usual.
They smell divine.
Not a whole lot of action in the vegie patch at the moment.
Below are some brussels sprouts that are slowly growing. This one has so far survived the onslaught from slugs.
I also have quite a few broccoli plants that are so far doing ok.
Last year they were attacked by bright green slugs so I have begun what I plan on being regular doses of Seasol. I've heard it helps. I'm really not a fan of sprays, slug pellets or anything that kills bugs for that matter - I'd prefer to 'discourage' than kill :)
Below is my other completely neglected patch. You can see some silverbeet that I keep forgetting to use (naughty me) and baby beetroot that I have been roasting (yum!).
I must do some work here and get it ready for broad beans and lots of peas. In fact, it's almost time to start these little guys germinating.
Well, there you have it, a bit of messy reality.
What have you guys got growing in your vegie patch?
Speaking of gardens, I am excited to have planted another couple of rose bushes. But that's for another post.
Have a great Friday and even better weekend. Think of me sitting at work over the weekend freezing my little butt off!
