This is by the way of being a last post for 2008. I’ve been a bit slack, it’s been a slow month for me in December with some bureaucratic nonsense to deal with, then catching the ‘flu just before the xmas shopping season folded up and went away. The upside of staying home was remembering to water my plants, as we finally slipped into some warmer weather.
My initial planter tub has flourished, to the point of now having small green tomatoes visible; I used some of the fresh basil growing with the tomatoes, to make a simple pesto to go with some salmon I baked on xmas day – yummy with fresh new season’s potatoes!
So I can happily skite of having already eaten from my little potted garden.
The next stage has involved planting another tub with silverbeet and beetroot plants, and the momentous decision to transplant some sweetcorn seedlings into the margin garden along the side of the house, to be trained up the weatherboards of our old villa.
Happy 2009, everybody!
