14 Jan – Tuesday Morning Impromptu Session

A first post from Dennis and Lydia! :D

So this morning we went over to the garden to see how the plants were progressing and also to work more on the spiral.

The Report:

Seems like the aphid problem is getting worse – We need a solution, fast. They’ve made themselves comfy on almost all of the long bean plants in Wicking Bed 2.

The long bean plants are also starting to outgrow their trellis. Some of them are starting to grasp onto the pergola that’s meant to house the passion fruit plant.

On the more positive end of things, the newly transplanted dill plants are no longer slouching over.

The clitoria vine also seems to be settling nicely into its new home. It’s got multiple flowers and new growth.

Herb Spiral Progress:

Toiled in the morning sun for a bit. We laid more bricks down to build the spiral. Now we need to decide how high we want the spiral to get before laying the rest of the bricks and pouring in more soil.
