On the second last Wednesday of Winter I think I’ve officially run out of Winter Wednesday ideas, perhaps that’s because it feels well and truly like Spring here. The garden is look great after spending almost all day for the last two out there weeding, watering, sweeping and inspecting. We’ve been lapping up every minute of sunshine we can, it must be helping my vitamin D deficiency mustn’t it.
I finally got around to ordering some seeds, a bit late I know. I was looking at the Diggers site and again saw their ‘low income’ collection, it states that you can grow 2 tonnes of food for just $20. This sounds incredible to me, and so I decided to put it to the test and ordered the seed collection. Now the website doesn’t give a great deal of information on how exactly it’s come to this conclusion not does it stipulate what size plot etc that you require so I’ll be interested to see if there’s any fine print. I have a small garden and none of it is really in FULL sun. Most of my beds get full sun for PART of the day. Having said that I’ve always been relatively successful are growing veggies so this should be no different I assume.
Anyway, my plan is to chart exactly how much I manage to produce from these seeds and see if I get anywhere near the TWO TONNES. I thought it was time for another project anyway so this seemed perfect.
Well, not much of a Winter Wednesday post except perhaps to say ‘bye bye’ Winter and ‘hello’ Spring.
