The herbs have spent winter in the seed box but now it is time to repot them. Not because they aren't doing well in the garden soil but they have to make room for the new seedlings.
Here's the celery, just repotted.
The parsley and thyme share a pot.
The chives, blooming.
Nice pot of mixed lettuce from the gardencentre.
Now the seed box is empty, we pull out the weeds. Then we dig the soil and we fill the box with a fresh bag of garden soil. Now only rake the top layer and the container is ready, the seedlings can move in.
The beets look fragile in the big box. We wonder if they survive the move outside!
This type, the Egyptian flat round, should be very strong. A suitable type beet for amateurs ;)
We sow some beets in the box outside, then hopefully we can harvest 2 times.
This is pumpkin seed, you can save some in October from your lantern.
Only three pumpkin seeds we sow directly in the box, they need lots of space.
The fruit we planted last year is doing great!
The blue berry plant has grown a lot and the berries are developing already.
The raspberry bush is the same story, it grows every day so it's promising!
The strawberry came also from the gardencentre, last years seeds failed.
The vines are not so good, we planted 3 and only one shows leaves.
We fertilize in September and April, the bare vines as well, who knows?
After sprinkling fertilizer spread a thin layer of soil on top.
Water the soil so it's nice and humid, now sunshine must do the rest!
Now we have to take good care of the kitchen garden! Sowed yourself or store bought, the plants need care and water. We will give it our best for another good harvest! More later!
