These weekly posts are to share the progress of our garden; sharing photos and our gardening experiments and will hopefully inspire you to grow your own garden too! :)

Our front garden bed is looking much more like a garden bed which is definitely exciting.
We planted the zucchini last week and they are continuing to healthily thrive. Since our transplanted tomatoes were so terrible and we were gifted those lovely tomato plants from our landlords, we turned over the dwindling ones and planted our new happy plants instead. We also planted the pepper plants we got last week along the squash and uprooted the kale that wasn't doing much at the end of the tomatoes as well. So now everything in that bed is green and looking, well, like a garden.

All the other greens are still steadily growing. Lettuce is looking healthy. We actually have some random peas coming up in the third bed too and we're not quite sure if it was the birds that moved them or… well, something else, we're not sure. We moved the bean trellis from the front bed as well because it was in the back where, like I mentioned, the soil isn't the richest but also because it's under the cover of the house so wouldn't get the rain meaning more watering.
Peas and cucumbers are still growing. The strawberries have been flowering for a while now but we've been picking off the flowers until they become a bit more root bound. I think we're at the point now where we will let them grow so hopefully we will have strawberries soon. What's interesting as well is that the strawberries in the ground look much healthier than the ones in the pot. Hmm.
We have some New Zealand spinach starts growing inside that will go in the ground in a week or so.
That is all this week! Hope you had a lovely long weekend!
