Have your grown tomatoes over winter? I have grown capsicums and been delighted what a head start they have had over seedlings in the next warm season, we get heaps of frost here so I was suprised that they survived, no fruit in the cold of course.May 11, 2010 at 5:20 am #463714
A new Strawberry patch, beside the Lemon tree. Planted with the runners off the old Strawbs. DD3 & DH lurvvvve them.May 11, 2010 at 5:22 am #463715
Janine, I have never grown Tomatoes at this time of year before, so a real experiment, I have some in pots as well in the hothouse and next to the house. Hoping for some Tomatoes, there are already flowers on them. My Capsicums are still going from Spring, some are looking alittle worse for wear but Im still able to pick some here and there.May 11, 2010 at 5:24 am #463716

Hi BusyLizzie and others in frost prone areas – what do you guys put over your frost intolerants to protect them? We have seen frost mat (much like vylene stiffening used for sewing) but we haven’t been able to buy any as yet and the frosts are a coming to Boonah way. Any hints would be gratefully received. Thanks for the new garden log – great seeing your successes.May 11, 2010 at 10:29 pm #463724lynnieMember
Hey Busy, thanks hon, muchly appreciated. Now only if the works proxy server didn’t classify page 1 as marijiuna that would be even better 😆May 11, 2010 at 11:06 pm #463725
😆 Hey Gem, isnt it funny when we get crazy over poop.
Heres the 4ft Copperhead snake that paid us a visit on Sunday. DD6 spotted it when she came out the back door, which is only metres away. She then yelled out to me as I was over at the hothouse, she promptly went back inside and came out the front door to show me where it was. DH was down the back and had to come up and then proceed to dig the garden up to find it, (will post pic later of the mess) It was very slow moving and very fat, we did find him, he went down a hole that came out between a large rock and the retaining wall just inches from all my herb pots that I pick from most days. But the most frightening thing is, that I was sitting on that wall not 10 minutes before the snake was spotted, this garden is right next to our entertaining area, the girls play out here and the path that leads to pretty much every place I go each day 😮 The first snake we have seen around the house in 7 years.May 11, 2010 at 11:08 pm #463726
He has been relocated…….to a better placeMay 11, 2010 at 11:15 pm #463727
Sue, Busylizzie is actually from a packet of seeds I had sitting on my desk when I joined up, Impatiens they were. So now everyone knows Sue that my real name is not Lizzie 😆 oh but I am busy at times.
Kasalia, I was a bit slack putting the seeds in earlier, your doing well to have some green ones already. Will show you mine later.
Thanks Gianna and Lynnie.
Boonahgirl, I dont usually plant anything that the frost will kill, this is the first time I have planted Tomatoes at this time of year, I have plastic around them so far, will let you know when its time to add something else.
