    Well that storm has passed and most of the mess is now cleaned up.
    I have removed the ruined plants and have replaced some of them with new seedlings that I had held in reserve "Just in Case" and I have reseeded the peas, carrots and beans and it looks like we have some nice mild winter weather coming for the next week or so.
    I have also planted some celery in a big tub ( 2mx1.5mx1m) that I have 3/4 filed with cow poo/potting mix/soil so that I can add mulch later on to blanch the celery.
    I am hoping that in another few weeks the veggie patch will look as good as new again

    The beans that I replanted on Tuesday have emerged already and the cauliflowers/broccoli that were pushed over with the wind have come good after I stood them back up and put extra soil around the base of them
    The plants that did survive the storm are doing really well now especially the beetroot, cabbages and various onions, Also some of the potato plants that I thought were "toast" have decided to produce new sprouts/leaves and I have planted some new seed spuds to replace the ones that haven't survived.
    All the seedlings that I had to replace are also doing really well due to the nice gentle rain (about 8mm) and the cooler conditions lately so I am once again "optimistic" about the garden

    With a total of only 24mm of rain over the week I have managed to collect about 5000l of rainwater in the tanks now for the garden and I haven't had to water all week so it doesn't look like I will need to cart any water for the foreseeable future

    Veggie Patch

    Over the last month or so have built a couple of new raised garden beds. All recycled timber & tin from the carport that was taken down for an extension.



    Thankfully we generally donít have the harsh weather Trout experienced.

    Where did you get the dirt from? I've had some pretty ordinary dirt over the years from so called 'Garden Suppliers'.
    If I can't remember, then it never happened!

    Veggie Patch

    Each bed has a 6x4 trailer load of mushroom compost. Also,you might notice a resetting of the ground level around those latest two beds. The excess soil was used for bed on the left. The bed on the right had a trailer load of compost , and excess site soil from from cut from two other beds.

    I made a wheel barrow screen to clean up the relocated soil in the 2nd bed. Itís quite effective, and made the soil look very clean.
