September 4th. 2018 ....Time to get down and dirty at the Community Garden. Spring is one of the busiest times of the year in the garden and to get an early start on our planting we have started our seed raising for my own plot , the Herb Garden , the newly renovated raised beds, and the vertical Strawberry Wall that have both had some attention recently. It’s nice to see the days lengthening and the temperatures increasing. ... by late October , early November the soil should be warm enough to plant all the Tomatoes 🍅, Eggplants , Chillies and Capsicums here in Warrnambool. We can still experience a few cold nights ,even a frost up until then. In the meantime the leafy greens, herbs and flowers need to put themselves out there too. Our little team are seed raising a lot of asian greens, a few summer cabbages, cucumbers , a variety of lettuce, kabocha pumpkin, capsicums, eggplants , tomatoes, chillies, endive with some more to come later. The flowers planted are a tray of sweet pea seeds, globe gilia, marigolds, zinnias, cosmos, phlox, aster, bergamot bee balm , sunflowers and Korean mint ( agastache.) Most of the flowers are usually direct sown but we have a few issues with snails chewing emerging tips and birds scratching up seeds... in such a big space and it's hard to keep up with it all ...now it's just down trial and error!#jardeinlefleurseeds#lambleynursery#southernharvest#greenharvestseeds#diggersseeds#warrnamboolcommunitygarden#seedraising.
