4 tomato varieties picked today - black krim, black cherry, red cherry and tigerella! Very happy with this harvest as last year nearly all my tomatoes were eaten by possums.. in the back of this picture you can see one of the nets Iโ€™ve been using to protect the tomatoes this year! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

[Summer 17-18]
Cutting open the first watermelon of summer ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿ‰ I had 3 melons pollinate on this first vine planted in spring, which has now withered. I have 2 more succession plantings of watermelon that both have melons growing ... watermelon for months, yay! ๐Ÿˆ To be honest, this is actually the first watermelon Iโ€™ve ever grown and Iโ€™m a little excited ๐Ÿค— Last summer i saw watermelons being harvested and cut by many gardeners and i was totally inspired to grow my own. Hubby isnโ€™t thrilled with the watermelon vine as it sprawls everywhere and provides lots of cover for snakes. Most vines i grow vertically for this, and many other reasons. Anyone grown watermelons vertically? How do you hold the melons when they get heavy?

"Gardening is an exercise in optimism" I've been out of town while Sydney was subjected to intense heatwaves and it's a struggle to face my scorched yard since returning home. But a few hours of hard work and I'm very happily back on good terms with the patch, grateful for today's harvest of tomatoes, cucumber, carrots and beetroot ๐ŸŒป

๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒฑ As much as I enjoy my alone time when I'm gardening, I do love sharing my little piece of paradise with my loved ones. Some are more willing to "help" than others ๐Ÿ˜‚ Can anyone else relate? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜

Thank you @damlasssengul for the tip! Got my #predatorymites and released them into my garden! I ended up purchasing the #californicus and #lacewing for my #redspidermite infestation. The Californicus are less sensitive to a larger range of weather conditions, which is perfect for Melbourne ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thank you @bugsforbugs for the speedy delivery ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #summergarden #summerveggies

For almost 2 months, I had baseball sized roots hanging out in the produce bin of my fridge. I thought they were rutabagas. The root veggies are always the last to get used from my CSA box, and because who knows what the hell to do with rutabagas?โ €
โ €
When I finally mustered up the energy to mash them butter and I started prepping them, I realized they weren't rutabaga. They were these watermelon radishes.โ €
โ €
Fail. โ €
โ €
So instead, they got sliced up thin with a mandoline and turned into an onion and radish fermented pickle. Check out the link in bio for the recipe.โ €
โ €
Ever have a produce mixup like mine? Leave me a comment and tell me about it! I'm sure hoping I'm not the only one who's made this error!

Lagi, sebuah catatan perjalanan merawat mint dr benih. Semoga tdk bosan ya teman-teman ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sepertinya ini jenis spearmint, tp tdk berbulu. Tekstur seperti common mint tp ujung daun runcing-runcing. Aromanya? Syedaapp.. lil bit minty and fresh!

Itโ€™s watering ๐Ÿ’ฆ day for my indoor ๐ŸŒฟseedlings! Iโ€™ve had a lot of questions about watering- hereโ€™s a mini Q & A:.
1๏ธโƒฃQ: When to water? A: When the top of the soil changes from dark brown to lighter brown, itโ€™s time to water! Donโ€™t let your seedlings dry out - even one time can stunt their growth.
2๏ธโƒฃQ: Watering schedule? A: I water everything inside on the same day to save time, but I check them EVERYDAY and water as needed.
3๏ธโƒฃQ: How to water? A: I pour water in the bottom of the tray - the pellets soak it up. For plants in cups, seed starting cells, or small containers, fill a plastic tub with a few inches of water and set the plants in it. They soak up what they need, remove them from the tub when the top of the soil is moist.
4๏ธโƒฃQ: Fertilizer for indoor seedlings? A: Yes - they need nutrients to grow healthy and strong! Use liquid fertilizer at half strength once they are an inch or so tall. My fav is @vermisterra worm tea - once a week, a few capfuls in a 1/2 gallon of water. Itโ€™s gentle enough for seedlings, never burns them, helps with root development. Available at vermisterra.com, use promo code โ€œcalikimโ€ for 10% off.

G a r d e n B l o o m s - ๐ŸŒปThereโ€™s so many DIY projects Hubby and I have lined up for the garden, some really exciting plans we have been putting together for our front porch area. With the whole back to school madness it has kind of pushed our plans to the bottom of the list unfortunately. I bet all you lovely mummas have been busy bees getting the kiddies ready for a new fresh start this year... am I right or am I right lol?!

These baby eggplants were my pride and joy...until they were prematurely munched by a pesky possum! I have nets around my plants but does anyone have any natural tips or tricks to protect their garden from pests? I would love to hear them! ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†

Bonica ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ˜Ž definitely growing these guys next year again!

The last of the sweet red peppers ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ I brought 1 chilli, 1 capsicum and this sweet pepper plant into the house to over-winter. The rest I treated as annuals and threw on the compost heap when the frosts arrived. The plants are prone to fungal infections when the weather gets cooler, even in the greenhouse. This is a little experiment to see how these established plants fare compared to my new seedlings from seed which I started last week. I hope ๐Ÿคž these guys will bear fruit sooner than their younger siblings. I removed the final fruits and pruned them hard after I took this picture.
