My vegie patch has been a bit neglected of late. It was a very wet summer so didn't produce much. Its sunny again, albeit getting cooler as we travel through Autumn.
As my compost was ready I did some weeding.
My one bin of compost stretched to spread across three garden beds.
In the first I planted strawberries for a treat next Summer.
In two others I have planted three different types of garlic including early, mid and late varieties, again for next Summer.
The beds are just waiting the arrival of some lucerne bales that will provide a thick, warm mulch over the top.
Following the permaculture philosophy of keeping often used plants close to the kitchen I planted some lettuce in the herb garden I am fortunate enough to have near my kitchen and front door.
Handy for packing lunches and dinner garnishes.
