I know I haven't posted anything from the community garden in a little while. The ducklings have been very distracting, no? I should bring you up-to-speed with the Spring garden before we tip completely into Summer. The forest of silverbeet has now gone to seed. In earlier posts I mentioned that the silverbeet was self-seeded. By leaving some of these to form seeds, I'll be ensuring that the cycle will continue. Also, they just got away from me, but I like the idea of pretending it's all part of some grand plan I have as an organic gardner.
I will need to remove a lot of these plants but I will save some to harvest their seeds when done.
