Combat gardening

Between thunder and torrential rain things were accomplished. A whole new row of topweight carrots were added as well as 3 dozen red onion seedlings from the quaint garden shop in Te Puke

The first sowing of parsnips have come up and have been enjoying the rain. Have since sown another full row, we will be parsnip rich. A simple frame was woven from old trellis to give the Provencal peas some support.

carrots, peas, broccoli brussels sprouts
basil and beetroot
The rain looked nice in the florence fennel flowers
