Jardin update

Well the day time heat and the almost nightly rain showers are helping the garden along nicely. The first lot of spuds, garlic and onions that I planted are doing well.


Lots more has gone in and today I spent a backbreaking afternoon planting capsicum, aubergine and courgette that I bought from a market this morning with the help of a friend.

Don came to the rescue and helped plant 6 new tomato plants as well. So far the pests seem to be staying away "touch wood" with the help of some coffee grounds and egg shells. But I am just a beginner to this gardening lark so any of you who are old hands at this please send me a comment with any helpful tips you might have.
