It’s amazing to think that soon all those northern hemisphere gardeners will have to bid spring and summer farewell as it will be the turn of gardeners down under to savour their magic.
Just a few weeks away and already I’m feeling a little under pressure as I have so much planned for this growing season. The last few weeks have been very wet here in the city of sails therefore there’s not a lot I can do in the garden because it’s very soggy underfoot.
As always I’m keen to start preparing the soil but I just have to be patient and wait for the spring sunshine to warm and dry things out. Other than laying straw around the strawberries nothing much has been done.
The seeds from Kings arrived a few days ago so my garden fork and string line are at the ready.
This season it’s pretty much more of the same however there will be a few new comers to the ranks or more accurately speaking “the rows” in my garden. The plot has grown a “little bigger” and the challenge is to improve on what I achieved last year but most importantly to enjoy myself whilst doing it.
In that respect I guess I’m no different to gardeners the world over as we all seek to get the very most from our square metres of dirt.
Can’t wait to get growing again …
