….allowed me to get outside and check up on our vegetable garden. Unfortunately it’s not looking very healthy at all.
Things started to go bad when we were away January and Kevin only watered the garden once all week – despite having some pretty hot days. Then for the last week we’ve had lots and lots of rain.
So the tomatoes are on their last legs – the big ones have gone rotten (I assume from all the rain).
The celery stopped growing ages ago and looked like this after a week of no water.
Still no sign of any viable zuchinni (the one thing we’ve always had lots of success with), cucumber plant is dead and our pumpkins never got going this year. The only thing still looking good are the onions, carrots, capsicums and some of the strawberries. It’s been a very mixed year with the tomatoes (until we went away) being the most successful. Now need a dry/sunny day to get out there and give it a good tidy up.
