Look, it’s raining – no, it’s not – yes, it is. Such is the nature of the weather today. Showers come and go and I swear I can see plants growing.
I was able to weed part of my flower bed this morning in between showers. My lifetime scourge – kikuyu grass runners – have flourished where I don’t want them and I removed several. The hugely productive sweet peas (part of which are shown in the photo) were chopped back, which is when I discovered last year’s dahlia tubers have sent up leaves. Yikes, I really need to plant the nine new dahlia tubers that are stored in my pantry!
Anyway, there’s always something to keep me busy in the garden and out of mischief.
Here’s my November gardening column, as published in the local newspaper Southern Highlands Express. In it, I write about the value of front gardens to local streetscapes.
How’s your garden looking this month?
