I placed an order for some seeds, and as usual couldn't resist adding in some that I am not sure are going to grow here (in the wet season too!)
Sunflower - sunbird
Cucumber - redlands long white
Carrot all season
Sweet william - summertime mix
Asparagus - Mary Washington
I really want some flowers - for a couple of years I had yellow cosmos and they were awesome for attracting butterflies, this year I thought I would try some sunflower and sweet William. Everyone says you cant grow carrots and cucumber in the wet season, but I see them at the markets, so thought I would give it a try. The cucumbers are against this fence, with sweet potato in front. I have used this bed for ginger for quite a few years, so thought I would switch it over, and put the ginger in other places. the tomato plant is still looking healthy so I will leave it there in case it gives me another flush of tomatoes before it succumbs to the heat and humidity.
I felt very confident yesterday as I tended the garden, dug out all the weeds, cleared the paths and planted my seeds, then last night it rained, and poured, a total wet season deluge. I have no idea what my little seeds will be doing - have they all washed away or did they enjoy that good long soak?
I need to get some mulch so that all the weeds don't return - I love it when my garden looks so neat and clean.
