Long time no post..

Does it ever change? Lol

Been up to lots of different things. Gardening, scrapping, hanging out with friends and going away :) It is the life!
The garden has been going well. Had some awesome harvests over the summer months. I started tracking my harvests in Dec, but January was my first full month

Here is how I have been going..

Garden Harvests 2012

Kg $
January 41.35 $229
February 3154 $141
March 27.88 $151
Things have slowed considerably now we’re coming into winter. This month is nearly over and I’ve only harvested about $60 worth of food. I have yet to weigh up all my pumpkins though :)
I have planted a heap of stuff for winter. I hope that it does well. I didn’t have much luck with broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower last year.
For winter I’ve planted.. Bok choi, tat soi, pak choi, beetroot, garlic, onions, red onions, spring onions. leeks(2 varieties), kale, 2 varieties of spinach, 2 silverbeet/chards, cabbage and mini cabbage, mini cauliflower, broccoli, peas – many varieties, broad beans(2 varieties) and 2 varieties of carrots… I think that’s it.. LOL!
Here is my most recent April photo of my garden it was taken at the start of the month though.

A lot of that has of course changed now. It’s funny how fast it can change.

Ok no promises but I shall try to blog a little more often over the winter months :D
