Once the flowers fell off off the lipstick plant it developed these long tendrils - arent they strange? I wonder if they contain some sort of seed?
In other news I broke down and bought a bale of sugar cane mulch. It is much more expensive than the hay mulch I normally get from my farmer neighbour, but he doesnt seem to have any this year. It is quite finely chopped so spreads easily and right away I could tell everything was happy to be bedded down between these billowy clouds of mulch.
I have quite a few seedlings that are slowly getting bigger, nothing seems as quick as I had hoped for though. Cucumbers are forming so they might be our first harvest. Oh! I forgot - I have nibbled on a few green beans and one cherry tomato. What I really want though is the need to buy one of those lovely harvesting baskets so I can stuff it chock a block full of veggies :)
Oh, I am so hoping for a prolific vegetable garden this season.....
