10 May – Update

on

Some photos of the garden after our community gardening session this morning. We had 4 neighbours from the core team turning up. The weather’s turning hot now, perhaps we should start our community gardening sessions earlier in the morning! After all, we would like neighbours (and interested members of the public) to join in and share / learn gardening skills.

Today was more of a garden check-up of sorts… Our chilli plants had white powder on the undersides, and while the leaves still show signs of them, they seem to be doing better. Our okra is fruiting. We have our first baby-sized tomato (photo to be taken)! The butterfly blue pea plant is blooming.

We also did some grass cutting. Didn’t manage to cover much of the garden grounds, but at least we manage to trim back some of the grass that is actively growing over the gravel paths and beds!

Neighbour Steven pointed out some beautiful, tiny wildflowers that are just sprouting all over the garden space. He shared how they attract the small tiny butterflies that flirt around the garden, and how our flowering plants also attract the larger butterflies. He shares so much interesting nature information with us – hope he agrees to do a share on this blog soon!

The red bananas are looking good!
