This afternoon we set to work in the veggie garden. We pulled out all the strugglers and stragglers, added compost to the beds and dug them over. We went to Bunnings to buy seedlings – tomatoes, basil, corn, rainbow chard and a couple of chili plants. We also bought bits and pices to set up a trickler watering system in the veggie beds. Before we went on holidays we set up a similar system in the rose garden and it’s working well. The veggie beds are a bit more of a challenge because they are separate raised beds, but we want just one continuous line to go around all the beds. We got the tricklers installed in the first bed and it looks like they’ll work well. Once it’s all done, I’ll plant up the seedlings then order a load of mulch to top up around the beds.
I also spent a lot of time today throwing the ball for Anzac (he could chase the ball all day). He’s already really good at dropping the ball in the hat. Tomorrow we’ll try it at the park. That will be the real test. There are lots of distractions at the park. Not like at home where his sole focus is the ball.
