What about all this rain? The rain storms were so heavy on the weekend in Sydney that most of the normally protected plants on the balcony were soaked and I didn’t need to water.
The rain combined with the burst of warm weather last week has been a boon for gardeners. I think my plants think they’re on a Club Med resort. Pina Colada anyone?
They’ve lushed up very nicely.
I’ve put in some beans against the west facing wall
The sorrel, feverfew, warrigal greens, Vietnamese mint, kale and a little spanish sage are jumping back into life on the vertical wall
My four varieties of potatoes are really starting to sprawl now. The potatoes should be ready to harvest in three weeks.
And the garlic will be ready when most of the leaves start to yellow – in about 4 weeks’ time
All in all the Edible Balcony tenants are very happy little chappies.
