I’ve decided to start another garden log, just been outside to pick the Pumpkins and in half an hour I have just got back that passion/urge to get some stuff happening in the garden. I know by taking some pics and posting them I will be more encouraged to keep going. Have grand plans, so Im getting off my butt and getting going with them. This is going to be the biggest and best garden Ive had by the end of the year :woohoo:
Some of this seasons Pumpkins, will keep us through the Winter, but was late putting them in and therefore didnt get as many as hoped.
Sue, these are the Paw Paw Pumpkins from the seeds you sent, :blink: they were alittle late setting fruit, will try again next season.
First job is to pull up Pumpkin patch and feral Toms to replant with Onions.
Lunch is over, so off I go……….May 17, 2011 at 5:53 pm #496549

now, more, more, more!!!May 18, 2011 at 2:43 pm #496552
I dont think Ive ever shown you “our bees” that we got last November. Although they have made honey, the season has been so wet/cold, and we think the Nucleus swarmed and so we lost our Queen, all these things factored in to not extracting any honey this season, and that any that they have produced will be staying in their box for their Winter food.
We have ordered another 3 Hives for Spring :woohoo:May 18, 2011 at 3:21 pm #496553

Those pumpkins look incredible which reminds me I’d better go see what mine are up to.May 19, 2011 at 10:33 am #496559veginoutMember
Great minds hey; I harvested my pumpkins on Wednesday and got 10 big’ns this year (jarredale I think) compared to over 40 last. Irritating how the best pumpkins grew from the compost but the well tended butternuts barely ripened.
Interesting to see how your bees are coming along, I’m going shopping for supplies next week ready to get started in spring – keep up the information so we can follow along 🙂May 19, 2011 at 6:36 pm #496560
The pumpkins were also Jarrahdale, I prefer the sweeter flesh then the dry. Only got about 6 Butternuts this year as well, 4 of those grew in the hothouse, by accident in the gravel floor, go figure.
Just been out to investigate our bee hive as we thought we may have lost our Queen as we didnt sight any eggs/grubs, or the Queen when we checked 2 weeks ago. Much to my relief and DH (who I just rang at work) I sighted some grubs and the big beautiful Queen herself, so watch out when Spring comes we are going to have a much more productive hive then we did this season. :tup:May 19, 2011 at 6:53 pm #496561FozzieMember
Beautiful Lizzie!! That’s great!! 🙂 More honey!May 19, 2011 at 8:08 pm #496562
Time for a couple more pics as promised, took a few so I can update more often :tup:
Some Onions, and Winter veg
Seedlings ready to plant out, when I prepare garden beds :whistle:
Couple of the winter Toms in the hothouse, there are quite a few fruits, look forward to actually eating one grown at this time of year.
